Boy, are my fingers sore!

I returned my Kala KA-T, which I had bought just a few weeks ago, when I decided I really enjoyed ukulele, and got the Mainland. It's very nice. The sound is warm and big, and it plays in tune all the way up the neck. Looks nice, too.

The poster that Mike sends with the ukulele reads "Mainland Ukes: Treat yourself", and I think that's right. I look forward to much uke-inspired happiness.

Glad to hear another owner enjoying a mainland uke, because I just bought one two days ago, and it should be here with me on monday! :) I'm so excited to get and play it after reading this!
What kind of tenor did you get? (cutaway? plain jane? rope binding? mahogany? mango? red cedar?)

I have been loving my Mainland that I picked up a couple of weeks ago.
