I can't think of a better way to spend my 4,000th post than by telling you all about my amazingly good fortune today.

I've been Dominated! :D

You all know Dominator is also a luthier. Today, he sent me one of his ukuleles. It came at about 10AM and I haven't put it down since. Suffice it to say that I'm a happy, happy man today. Dom says that the ukulele is a "blem," or a second. All I can say is that as soon as it arrived, it instantly became my best ukulele, by far.

Here's his initial write up with a sound sample and pictures. (http://dominator.ukeland.com/index.php?title=number_005_tenor_in_koa)

Dom, I can't thank you enough, man. I'm going to play her constantly. Anyone got any ideas for a name? :D

Am I wrong for reading that topic as a sexual BDSM line? :D

Cool thing with uke though! :)

Wow, what an amazing sounding uke! Really excellent tone. :smileybounce:

I think you should name her Domino, and it would be easy to find an appropriate charm to adorn her.

Excellent name, outstanding tone and it will only get better and better the more it's played.

I cannot find the right words to describe this beautiful community right now. Many people would not or could not believe someone would do something like this Dom.

Congratulations Seeso. Hey, if you choose Domino for the name a great first video would be Van Morrison's Domino. I can hear you singing it.
Regards,
Ray

Seeso -- Congratulations! It's an absolutely beautiful ukulele. What a treat. You deserve it for so many reasons. Enjoy the heck out of it.

It's a wonderful community here and what Dom did was lovely.

Whoa, that's the perfect name for her! Thanks! She is now christened, "Domino." :D

I played her at an open mic tonight. She sang wonderfully.

Way too late into the thread to make my reaction look spontaneous, but what a great piece of ukulele loveability! A most generous gesture by Dominator, and a most worthy recipient in Seeso.

Great vibes, people. Now seeso, any footage from your open mic?

Congrats, Seeso! Dom, that's too cool....

Seeso, I just double-checked the photos. I'd say there's enough room on the peghead for a custom, inlaid domino or two....

Just a thought. ;)
