Here's a soprano ukulele I built for a customer in the Channel Islands, UK.

Which two? This and the jarana? Well, there are distantly related. The ukulele is from the Portuguese cavaquinho taken to Hawaii by sailors, and the Jarana is from to the baroque guitar taken to Mexico by Spanish colonists.
