    Default Mr. Sweetie shares his first NUD

    Today is the day.

    After a string of bad luck yesterday which included missing the UPS driver and getting a blowout on my work truck, the sun shone through.

    Mrs. Sweetie was home to take delivery this afternoon and I arrived home to the uke I have been waiting a while for. Yep, after hemming and hawing for nearly a month I nervously took advantage of the PONO PC CEDAR/ROSEWOOD SOPRANO RS-C-PC (BLOWOUT SPECIAL) on HMS. I am glad I did when I did because it was the last one. I opted for the full set-up and tuner upgrade... although I do feel a little bad for not even giving the Pono friction pegs a try. My reasoning was, I was saving money with the blowout price, and if I were going to shell out for a uke of this quality, I might as well go for the gold. The tuners are nice.

    I will review this officially shortly, but I wanted to at least share this with other friends who get it.

    Now, for the pictures. They are not the best quality but they do give you the jist.

    They call me Mister Sweetie.
