The tenor uke that Elvis is playing is a custom job that I built for him a few years ago. It is all koa, with German maple and ebony binding nd purfling.

Hmmm, if this is a Style 3 De Vakey, that may not be it:

Chuck "Frets" Fayne over on the Fleamarketmusic.com site thinks Elvis's uke may be a Style 3 De Vekey. Can anyone enhance one of the images to confirm this? 150 Bonus Points to the Ukuleliac who cracks this!!
