http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y284/toucanmango/DSC09124_00.jpg I worked a deal on this Honu with MGM, great service as always Thanks, Mike! I know the Honu is not for every one but it is for me :D I love it, it's flawless & sounds excellent and looks beautiful. It has Aquila's on there which I will leave for a few weeks at least but, It's my first uke with friction tuners & I forgot to ask Mike when changing strings do I just turn the knobs to loosen the strings or do I need to loosen the screws first? Here is the actual uke. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEDWX:IT&item=330327958872

just loosen the knobs to loosen the strings. not necessary to touch the screws unless the strings slip and lose tuning. have fun. thinking of a honu tenor as well... looking for a cheaper polar opposite to a Kanile`a Sound Monster. is the honu bright?

I recently purchased a Honu rope series concert (also with beautiful grain) from MGM, and I love it. It is brighter sounding than my Kanile'a K-1 tenor. (Both have Aquilla strings.)

Enjoy your Honu, Toucan!

Whoa.. Beautiful Ukulele. Got to try a couple of Honu tenors from a local store in Carlsbad and I must say that it is a high quality made Uke...

Congrats :shaka:

Any one interested in a Honu should check out the thread below, I believe GX9901 has a vid & thoughts to share as well as some of the other members, also Big Island Ukulele chimed in a couple times with some good info. http://ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10412&highlight=honu
