I remember when the first carbon fiber guitars came out the they were advertised as impervious to the weather except for the strings and tuners.

Basically you could use one to paddle a boat around and then pull it out of the water and play it... it was also handy for bailing water out of the boat.

With the exception of the tuners, are the Blackbyrds just as impervious to the elements?

For purely selfish reasons I hope MGM still has one when he comes to Cerritos so I can play it!

Mike, After buying a bunch of ukes from you in cyberspace, I'm looking forward to meeting you in St. Helena and test-driving a carbon-fiber uke. Mahalo!

I heard a Fluke was used as a boat paddle once.
