With my hubby and my new UKe! Luna Concert Floral Ukulele!! Our anniversary is next week and he got it for me early... Its been all set up and sounds beautiful!! I have a lesson tonight and if I feel inclined and nervy enough I will play something soon for you all!
My 14 yr old son loved plugging me into his zoom effects pedal and making "Sugartime"

I just had to had to had to have it! I saw it in the shop when I bought my first ukulele $60 (which I felt incredibly guilty doing) but when my hubby saw how much I have been loving playing he got me this one, I shouldn't NEED another uke, but I am sure that I will get more... Here's the specs on it from the website:

The floral spray around the sound hole of Luna's 23" Floral Concert Ukulele includes Hibiscus and Plumeria. Hibiscus, the state flower of Hawaii, symbolizes delicate beauty and reminds us to seize the day. The Plumeria is a symbol of Spring and is therefore associated with birth and life.

This really made me chuckle! I think my first uke is sad and have been moved the the 'dustcover bag' my daughter wants to learn to play too.. so I think it will still get good use. (crossing fingers) She already plays violin and flute (shes 10) I am so jealous of her!

the more I look at it the better looking it gets! Thanks for the details.

I guess I'm particularly interested because my wife has, ever so slowly, been won over by the ukulele and I was hoping to buy her a nice one of her own for Christmas...I just bought her over to the computer and slyly asked her what she thought of yours...I got the right response and am now going to check it out further.

Thanks fitncrafty for posting....I also love the symbolism...makes it extra special and adds that other dimension that is really appealing.

All the best mate!

You are very welcome Eugene.... the more I play, the more I love it! I have had to opportunity to hear my teacher (playing uke for almost as many years as I have been alive) play a ragtime on it! Wow... it blew me away, it has great potential as I learn and improve! It's bright, not twangy, and I like that... It did need a good setup and once that was done it's great. It is holding its tuning well too... which is great!
Good luck, you will have to let me know if you get it and how she likes it... they make another with dolphins that is blue. I too like the symbolism, it means a lot to me with my personal life!

Luna will release two new ukes this year, one design is on Yvonne's blog (CEO/Founder of Luna) and the other secret... for now... I want one of the tattoo models too..

Aloha Mark,
Many thanks for enlarging it for me..Wow it's an amazing looking uke....I guess my
eyes are not what they used to be, I guess that comes with the progession of age...
Yeah it's of beautiful, I would be very proud of it....I like the Cherry stained gloss finish, and the different inlay moons on the neck,
the cutaway, beautiful headstock design, with electic's too...and the cute feminine flowers
around the soundhole....the icing on the uke....What a lucky girl!!!! having a awesome uke
and and awesome hubby buying it for her..... MM Stan.
Just noticed too, its looks like a slim body.....anybody knows????
