This beautifully handcrafted Lichty Django style modified baritone ukulele was designed with the intention to create an instrument with more overtones and increased sustain. By adjusting the porting from the traditional location to an upper bout porting system he was able to achieve just that. Great note separation with wonderful clarity and sustain. A highly recommended piece for the professional ukulele player as well as any ukulele enthusiast. ID#:190023
