I really don't have words to describe my feelings right now. well ill name a few. disbelief: in that I never knew that someone that ive never met face to face, could be so kind. Joy: Ive never felt this way before.


Deach. Thank you. I received the news that my uke had come in the mail when i just had a bad doctor visit. Needless to say, the five minute drive home was hellacious. But something suprised me. My mom beat me to the front door. She jumped out of the car and traveled at the speed of light, and when I asked her why she was running, she started clapping her hands saying,"I want to see the uke now!!!".


Deach my entire family has been warmed by your gift and Im here to tell you that in the near future you will recieve a gift from my family.

Thank you once again Deach. I dont know about Karma,I dont know much about it, but if its real, you sir have a straight shot at jesus's side, broh.

Excellent Smithers!

Getting a new uke delivered is a really great experience.
I video taped mine lol...from opening to inspection.

Have fun with it! I hope you post some sound files or youtube clips.
I'd be interested to hear/see it.

woooooow thats pretty!

i dont know if there is anything that beats the 'OMGUKULELEITSHEEEERE' feeling.... i know that i really enjoyed it and probably startled the people who work in the mail room at my school.... i had the goofiest grin plastered on my face,then danced around stupidly hugging the box.

I as well documented the opening of the uke, via stop motion.

The total # of posts for a member shows up on past posts as well. So right now, every post by Deach says the same number.

Just to stay on topic, is that new uke a tenor?

awesome uke.... deach is so nice for just giving away expensive ukuleles to complete strangers who he has never met. he is really one of a kind. karma is definitely going to get him for all of his kind actions

Nikolo -- you are one lucky guy. It's a beautiful ukulele. deach's deachiness remains such a mystery to me, but just sit back and enjoy the ride. That uke will remain special to you always. Enjoy!

yes it be a tenor. A beautiful sounding tenor. I already changed the stringz on it to D'addarios and i have to say, the action is way high. ill probubly send it to a luthier to get it lowered cuz i dont trust myself.

it sounds beautiful. theres no other word.

I would LOVE to put up videos but i dont have a video camera or a mic to record it with. Ill probubly go buy a webcam.

Nick, you owe deach one big ole kiss! :love:

oh im workin on it, but there isnt an envelope big enough for the kiss i would give him.(of course its a hersey kiss. a chocolate shop near my house sells huge ones lol)


I really love this uke. Ive said in past threads that my perfect uke would be D'addario strings, gloss finish, SOME type of inlay(rope is my new favorite), and mahogany body.

And low and behold. This uke fits that perfectly. I can honestly say this time its been a dream come true.


Deach, you are karma are going to have a good relationship for the rest of your life. Much thanks!!
