That's a heck of a first uke. Heck, it's a great uke period. Enjoy!

Wowzors. My first uke was a 20$ piece of junk. Be sure to play the hell out of that thing ;)

Thanks...Its better to start learning right :) I play classical guitar and i enjoy my instruments and really care for them. Plus i believe its more fun to learn on a uke that sounds and looks nice.

Since you got such a nice ukulele to start with you won't need to buy any more. ;)

But you used the same philosophy when you got married right? didn't settle for second best. ;) Works in all facets of life. :shaka:

I've had a bunch of ukes in a very short time - I now have my Kanile'a K-1 concert and feel like I've found exactly what was missing in every other uke. You're starting the right way! You'll love it!

welcome to the "family"....

and now that you've got yourself a quality piece I think your elder brothers and sisters here at UU forum would like to say..."I like try". :D

the great thing about a quality piece like the Kanilea is that it'll inspire you to improve with each passing day...good ukes just have that about them.

ahui ho,
Shawn

Thanks to all that replied. Im the kind of person that if i like something i want to make sure that it will be the best one i can afford. I play classical guitar and to be honest i only have one guitar but its a good one. I hope i dont get the UAS anytime soon lol. Im sure this uke will provide me years of fun.

Joe and Kristen have amazing customer service, and their ukuleles are of fantastic quality. You made a great choice.

Ahh, you saw thru my little ruse, eh? ;) It just so happens that I need 30 ukuleles.

I only need a total of 7 ukes: My baritone for those lower notes (and to play like the born-again jeeper), a banjo uke for those tin-pan alley tunes, my Ohana tenor for general play, a fluke for conventions, a second travel uke for family functions, a custom uke (because every uker should get a custom at some point), a Sceptre because it's awesome, and a TV Pal so I can play like GUGUG. :cool:

Your logic is air-tight on this.
