My Ukiyo Vita
In being on the look out for nice Ukuleles I see the work of a number of full and part time luthiers. The instruments they make look very nice and worthy of note.

Marc Schoenberger - Ukiyo

From Grover Beach, California, he started making instruments professionally in the early 1990's and after a stint with Third Wave Ukuleles, a now defunct, (sometime after 2001), manufacturer from San Luis Obispo, he went off to found Ukiyo in 2000. He builds Soprano Concert and Tenor scale Ukuleles plus some reproductions of famous old models like the Stromberg-Voisinet Aero and the Harmony Vita.
The website was parked last time I tried, he may no longer be building?

Will Eikleberry - Naughty Little Monkey

(love the name! anyway... ) A graduate of the Summit School of Lutherie in British Columbia and a former worker at the Santa Cruz Guitar Co. before setting up in Olympia, Washington State. He makes mainly Guitars but does other instruments too and is fond of making Cigar Box Instruments
