Moonlight Music (http://www.moonlightmusic.com/index.html)
467 South Coast Highway
Encinitas, CA 92024 USA

Had some Fenders, which I've never seen before, a couple of incredibly finished Kala's, plus a few vintage ones to boot.

Had it not already been an expensive (in ukulele terms) weekend already, I would have swallowed-up that Mango Saprano. The grain was amazing!

Cool hippy-guy, Russ ownes it. When we walked in, he was goofing around with a guitar in the corner, and as I picked-up a uke to strum, he (bless him) dumbed-down his cords so we could play together. Nice!

Across the street is one of my favorite dive-bars, the Daily Double.
