I've ordered two Makala Dolphins and a string-set from MGM, and i can't wait to recieve it!! I'm looking forward to it like a little kid waiting for christmas eve! It'll probably take a while since all air-traffic in Norway is cancelled at the moment beacuse of the volcano in Iceland...

You have to imagine that when a volcano affects something to do with ukuleles, it's usually a very different volcano in a very different place.

My son has a Dolphin. Great ukulele. I want to trade out the strings at some point. The ones on it are a bit dead. But it's great fun. Be patient, and enjoy!

What colors did you get?

I heart my Dolphin. And it's PURPLE!

A white and a yellow/orange sunburst :)

Pulelehua: The Dolphins from MGM comes with Aquila strings :D

Those yellow ones are nice. If I remember correctly, the white one 'sparkles'? Sparkly things are nice...

I have a white one. It was perfect for embellishment and customization.
I really want an additional one but can't begin to justify it with all the other ukes I already have.

It's cheap enough to justify it :D

I have a black one and it is Sparkly...

We have quite a few in my family :)

Only so many times I get to use that excuse. Especially when in much less than a year I've accumulated a quantity of ukes that equals the total of lovers I've had in my 45-year-old fearless-hearted lifetime.

I want a black one to paint the dolphin glittery silver. I think that would look sweet.

That begs a number of questions. Or perhaps just one...

Skitzic, I like your way of looking at things! :)

Thanks! I was thinking that chrome paint they have would look pretty good too if it was done right. That would be trickier than the glitter paint though.

No. None of my lovers have been dolphins.

Are you sure? Have you ever woken up in a puddle, covered in tuna with no idea what happened the night before?

Lolz. This made me snort Diet Coke out of my nose! Then I told my husband I needed more ukes...

I lack the courage to tell My girlfriend that I need a new, solid wood, kinda expencive uke... And I certainly lack the reasons why I need it ;)
