    Default Quick NUD

    I was following the USPS tracking closely, and I knew that my new ukulele had made it from Florida to Salt Lake City last night. I was resigned to waiting until Tuesday for it to finally make it to it's new home. As I was driving to church this morning I noticed a mail truck turning into my neighborhood. Hmmm. That's odd. I didn't think they were delivering today? What are the odds? As soon as I got to church I called home and told my mom to be watching in case the package came before she left for church. She said it arrived about 5 minutes after I hung up. I'm so glad she was still at home to get it safely inside.

    Loprinzi concert
    Cedar top/Rosewood back & sides, maple binding, walnut & maple stripe on the neck & headstock.
    Ebony fretboard & bridge.
    Customized with an extra fret marker on the third fret, 1 7/16 nut, UPT tuners, and MiSi pick-up.

    I haven't had time to play it a lot yet, but so far it sounds wonderful. It's gorgeous. The cedar top & dark rosewood look great together. I will post a review once I've had it awhile.

    Congrats - looks wonderful. I have a Loprinzi LN Soprano, thanks to a UU member, that I love to bits.....and a concert that will be coming my way soon. It has been a real pleasure dealing with Donna and crew.

    I’ve enjoyed following your posts and your journey to discover the “keepers”. It has taken me much longer but has been so much fun.

    Beautiful! I especially like the multi-layered back of the neck. Enjoy!
