And here is the video review. Enjoy;)

Note: for some reason the first minute of the video is very low in volume. It was fine on my iPhone... dunno what youtube did to it.

Lovely look and sound from that new uke - congrats! Also, I love that Mexican song. I have it on a CD but never thought I would hear it on the uke.

And that wall of ukes... What can I say, its a thing of beauty.

Congrats, I think I know why you're in love. A friend of mine from TBUS just got one, after Mim showed them off at TBUG last fall. It sounds great, pretty loud, lots of sustain. Sarah Maisel played it a little and gave her seal of approval. They look like a crossover, that is almost pineapple, almost standard shaped body....pretty easy to play too

Such a lovely uke! Very rich and deep sounding. Seems like you're enjoying it. I'd love to get one...just wish he made some in smaller scales as tenors aren't for me.

Real nice looking and sounding uke Ivan. Congrats! Glad I'm not up home in Gloucester or Seekonk now...........though we had the record low in southwest Florida of 34F this morning. Stay warm, and congrats again.

Thank you all. Yes it's a beautiful and well made instrument.

I was inspired to do my review as I think Gary Gill is making great Ukes. And MIM as always provided an excellent service in the setup and availability of her services.
