    They say it's not a draft, but you have to sign up for it (and "it" is a draft when enacted), so is it a draft?, I'd say so. By the way, if you don't register, they really punk on you down the road, ie. no SS benefits, etc.

    My son registered. I'm still perplexed why my daughters didn't have to.
    UWC; only those who have not been can rationalize not going.

    And I have a couple of nice concerts for when I need a high G traditional ukulele sound.
    Otherwise? Absolutely. This is the one.
    Funny because in my mind, when I get my Moore Bettah,
    a double puka 5 string is always what I imagined I would ask Chuck to build for me. To have this drop in my lap, from pretty much the only other person I wanted an ukulele from, and it is a 5 string, well you get the idea.

    The strings are very close together,
    they act as one. The strings are closer together on my CR than on any other ukulele I have seen with doubled strings. In fact they go through the same hole in the string-through bridge and are separated on the bridge by a vertical pin, never seen that before either.
    It just adds a little something extra, I really dig it.
    Especially the harmonics.
    Last night I was practicing how to hit the harmonics in the middle of a riff, something I have wanted to pull off for a couple of songs in my repertoire, and it is much easier on this ukulele.
    Look out Jeff Peterson!

    Silly Gary! It is from everyone's happy place who has ever been - as Bryan says, if you know you know!
    It is my happy place too.
    The only picture of me smiling while I am playing. Does that help?
