View Full Version : Pulled the trigger on a Mya-Moe Black stripe

02-27-2011, 04:42 PM
I saw this uke and had to have it! I tried ordering a mango in the past, but just couldn't decide on the options. I've been waiting for the good people at Mya-Moe to have some in-stock ukes, but it has been a long wait. Then this beauty came along and the choice was oh so easy.

Excited is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats David. No doubt influenced by Aaron's recent sound samples. Nice choice on the Myrtle

Gorgeous! I think that Mya Moe are making some of the most beautiful and resonant pieces. I almost bought one in Denver - hoping luck is with me next weekend and I score one off of the raffle. But I think that I need myrtle to make my life complete.

I have one on order, it's not gonna be done until September!!!

I've wanted a custom from a fews places, but I just can't choose. When I was in Washington state, I was suppose to go to the Mya-Moe shop and check out some ukes. My oldest got sick and Gordan and Char were leaving for a uke show the next day. They were even willing to meet me half way, but a sick kid is a sick kid.

Seems like this uke was in the cards for me. I either wanted a Myrtle or Mango, but wasn't trilled with the plainer looks that both could have. I saw a few they really impressed me, but this one.....makes me smile just looking at the pictures!!!!

Thanks for posting about your new uke and the link. I wasn't familiar with Mya-Moe's before. Looks awesome!

Are you still loving your Mya-Moe? I just ordered a custom mango Classic tenor and bought their one stock ukuele that just became available today, a myrtel tenor traditional. I discovered that I only live about an hour from the folks at Mya-Moe and they were kind enough to set up a tour of their shop for me later in the month. That's when I will pick up my stock ukulele; I won't see the custom one until sometime Jan 2012. Right now my favorites are a 2000 Kamaka Ohta San and my custom Ken Potts koa tenor that I picked up when I went to Maui; he too was kind enough to give me tour of his shop. If anyone is ever in Maui, look Ken up, he has the best mangos on the island!
