Hi all

I should have posted these photos earlier, I got these for christmas from my boyfriend and best friend Gavin. It's a Kala KA FMS Soprano, which is beautiful, the back is amazing, can anyone else see 2 birds, a wolf and a rhino or is it just me? I also got a solid case for it and in the box in the case was a silver ukulele brooch that Gavin commissioned a friend of ours to make. her name is Morag and should you want to explore further her address is www.fuzionjewellery.co.uk

hope you like, I love

That little sliver uke is too cute. In your Kala, I see the face of an angler fish.

I see the 2 birds :)! And the Rhino! Very pretty back on that one! I really love all the shaped you can see in it! I have a spalted maple myself (concert size) and I think the more dramatic the back the better. Mine is very dramatic as well and I see a skinny ghost guy in mine ;)!

The brooch and uke are beautiful! You are a very lucky woman.

I see a woman with long curly hair riding a horse.

Definitely see the angler fish. The wood on that Kala is incredible. :O

How does the sopranino sound? I've never played a uke with a solid silver top before. :B

Most have one of each but when you have found both in one that is a real treasure.

I see a dragon:

It's the mighty GRIFFIN! or also two of them. It's like one of those trick questions, "How many griffins are there?" Some say 1; some say 2, but the real answer's 3. :p

P.S. I'm having trouble finding the rhino. Can anyone point it out?
P.P.S. There's also at least 3 evil bunny rabbits I spotted too. The evil bunny at the bottom is flipping me off! What a jerk!
P.P.P.S. I wonder what you'd find if you turned it upside-down.

he's right under the kissing birds, charging staight out of the uke, I like to think he's chasing the wolf.


yes I am very lucky, I'm very grateful to have someone like Gavin in my life...and the ukuleles:D
