Someone recently posted that Mim had two Pineapple Sundays on her site. I know these don't become available very often, so I looked, decided, and bought. Although Mim's description said that it came with a case, I didn't expect something as beautiful and perfect-fitting as this Kala case.

Liking a sound is a personal thing, but I think the sound is great. I haven't compared it with my other ukes, but it's typically KoAloha - loud with good sustain.

I also looked when I saw that post about Mim. You picked the one I would have picked, if I had decided to buy one. IIRC, yours is the more boldly striped of the two. Very nice!

Great snatch Jerry! Pineapple Sunday is rare to come by. I like the bold stripes on the back. The case looks great. Mim doesn't skimp on cases. She gave me a beautiful Kala ABS case for my KoAloha Mango Concert.
How does the sound of the Pineapple Sunday compare to the Specter? Are they similar?

Very nice. I know someone who was after a Scepter for quite a while, this looks even better. I'm tempted to spend the $1600 myself.

I like being able to see the actual uke I'll get, rather than seeing a generic photo.

You don't see them for sale very often, so act quickly when you do. Try eBay - lots of good ukes from Japan - and Reverb. I bought a Scepter on eBay from Japan.

EDIT: Mystery solved, I think. I was unable to post a response to kohanmike's post when I included his signature. The site gave me all sorts of reasons - not 10 characters, spam, posting too fast. By deleting his signature lines, the post went through. I'm going to try it again, leaving the signature lines in place.

EDIT: Yes, the signature is the problem. My post was rejected twice, once for being too short, and once for being spam. Now I know why I've had problems responding when I reply with quote.

Thank you Jerry, I've been having the same problem, but my workaround is to go to the Advanced window and save the post from there, which works. This started to happen after the recent hack, they must of added more security for posts with web links. What I will do is remove the URL tags and see if that works.

This is a test of my signature without the URL tags. (That worked.)

Nice Pineapple Sunday! The Kala cases are nice that MIM's sends out with the KoAloha uke's. Enjoy!
