My husband got me an early Mother's Day present and I absolutely love it! I've been coveting this uke since I first saw it on FMM in Dec. That curly koa and maple and sunburst...oh my! Plus, I've been wanting to try a Pohaku with all that I've heard about Peter Hurney's builds.

I managed to let 2 ukes go recently and today I just got this beauty. (Not knowing that my husband got me this surprise gift, I actually splurged and ordered the Rebel baritone from HMS...I'm waiting for that one to arrive.) Looks like I'll be officially posting some ukes to sell soon in order to thin the herd again.

Congrats! I've never seen one of those before. You must be the 1st on UU!

Pohaku ukes are works of art. I don't feel worthy at all but am grateful to be a part of the club!

Here's my old Pohaku baritone, the one I sold. I know, stupid, right.

Peter makes incredible ukuleles, and he is just a heck of a nice guy. Glad you got that ukulele.
