Loveland Baritone(poor photo)
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.

Dave Lautner

I'm short of information here and its possible he did not make the Ukulele pictured, (though the branding on the 7th fret looks the same as that used on his Guitars)? What I do know is ran his own luthiery workshop from the Pittsburgh area for a while where he made mainly Guitars. He gave this up to move to Nashville and work for Gruhns Guitars in or around 2010 and may have now left Gruhns and started on his own again?

Mike Medeiros - Loveland Heritage Lutherie/Medeiros Musical Instruments

Working out of Loveland, Colorado he has been making and repairing instrument since before 2002. He mainly makes Guitars, Mandolins and Banjos but his standard catalogue includes a Baritone/nylon strung Tenor Guitar and he does custom work too. In the past another luthier called James Lechleidner worked here too
