Chechout the Ko'olau Guitar & Ukulele listing for an idea of what I can do. I'm a big fan of their instruments and play a custom Ko'olau CS Tenor, actually have two as one is a back up in training.

Carbon Fiber Hybrid - Most carbon fiber ukuleles cost well over $1000. The Phoenix ukulele is more affordable with the same sound quality by making the body and soundboard out of carbon fiber, while the neck, fretboard, and bridge are made of specialty woods.
It all began on blazing 110 degree Arizona day...
Hi, I'm Dallin and I'm the founder of Phoenix Ukulele and I designed and painstakingly developed our first carbon fiber ukulele. The inspiration for this new design came from a few different places. Firstly, I already own and operate Anilo Carbon, a small business making carbon fiber rings and plates. Secondly, I studied aerospace engineering in college and we learned all about cutting edge composite materials such as carbon fiber.
I know that carbon fiber instruments already exist, but having worked with carbon fiber so much I knew that the incredibly high prices of the instruments on the market could be dropped. I don't mean that anyone is ripping you off. On the contrary high end carbon fiber instruments are worth the cost. However, the same tone and quality that a $1,500 ukulele produces can be replicated at a much lower cost by cutting out some eccentric features. This is why we design our ukuleles with a wooden neck and fretboard. We want the sound of carbon fiber for the resonating chamber and soundboard and can reduce the overall cost by using some wooden parts to form a wood/carbon hybrid.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
