Please post pics or a video. I'm sure we all would love to see or hear it. I for one, am incredibly jealous.

In fact... all of these recent uke purchases on the forum is kicking my UAS into overdrive.

Congrats on the Kanile'a! Post pics when you can. I should be getting my KoAloha tenor tomorrow and I'll have a ton of pics during the unboxing.

I'll post a bunch of photos and a vid asap. I need to find the perfect song to record to properly christen her :D.
And congrats on the Koaloha!

Speaking of UAS, I've been really good recently. Haven't brought home a uke myself (or coaxed my dad into bringing one home) in a few months. Sort of miss that new-uke feeling. But congrats on the new Kanilea! They're great ukes. I'm getting ready to make my own Kanilea my top uke. Taking it in when Joe gets back to the shop to get some sort of active pickup thing-a-mabob installed in it. Wonder if I can get it done for free if I put on a fedora, and get a tan, put on my best filipino accent, and tell them I'm Aldrine Guerrero.

The only word I can think of to descride the sound is....sweet. And it plays like you wouldn't believe (although I don't have anything worth comparing it to). I highly recommend this ukulele.

Not bad. Bet you could make a decent cigar-box uke with that neck, anyway. ;)

Congrats on the sweet uke!

Haha the thought of chopping her up sends chills down my spine...

sweet is a good word to describe ukulele vibrations. Post vids soon.:love:

I hate you... now I want one. GAh! I just spent a grand on one, LOL

I didn't think it was possible but my UAS has been stifled after this purchase. Probably because it's my first proper uke. And I'm sure it's only temporary.....:)
