I don't either... I'll probably break down sometime tomorrow, then relapse if it doesn't come first thing in the morning ;)

You're such a tease!

Seriously though - the waiting must be killing you. If it was me, I'd be checking that tracking number every five minutes.

Wow, congratulations on ordering your BRAND NEW KAMAKA...and great kudos to you for working so hard to save up for it...I was wondering what had become of your $$$ tally, it's been fun watching it grow.

And enjoy the suspense of waiting, and the unwrapping! Remember if there are no pics, it didn't happen :)

Godot never shows up. Your Kamaka will...and very soon. I'm sure you will love it. I love mine. Nothing's more soothing to the soul than strumming a Kamaka concert.

GAHHHH I am SOOO FREAKING TICKED. Lark Street failed to mention having to sign for the package, so we honestly didn't think about it. Sooo my mom takes me to go tutor my cousin (after I've been hugging the windowsill all day watching) and guess what? She comes home to the sticker on the door saying they'll bring it tomorrow. SERIOUSLY!? I've been checking out the window every 30 seconds since 8AM this morning and they come the ONE time we're all out of the house!?? My gosh...

Aw jeez, I hate when sellers ship stuff signature required but neglect to say they're doing so. That same thing happened when I bought my first Kamaka concert, I had to wait a whole extra day because nobody was around to sign for it. Hang in there!

.....I feel for ya.

I got a guitar delivered a few weeks back, It was shipped from Japan to Vancouver Canada. Checking the tracking # for updates I saw that it arrived in Canada the next day!!! Woohoo,,,,,, so I thought it would be a day more getting to me.....not so.
Next day I checked progress again ...."Item waiting for customs broker clearance" then "Item departed to Post Office" then "Item being prepared at Post Office for delivery" .....by this time it was evening and I had figured, oh one more day.......arrghhh!!!!!
Next day I had to work only till noon , during my break I checked again..... "Item on route to customer from Post Office". I made it home after work @ 12:50pm only to see a note at the door "Item will be available at local Post office after 5pm" .........arrggggghhh ........the time on the note..... 12:45pm ......I missed it by 5 mins. 4 hrs later I had it in my hands..... ahhhhhh all better now..

Cheers and good luck.

ITS HERE!!! ITS FINALLY HERE!!! I'm SOOOOO flipping excited!! The sound sample video is uploading to YouTube now, and let me tell you I could NOT be happier!! The ukulele is GORGEOUS!!

Alright, heres the technicals. I ended up discussing the ukulele at length with Larkstreet Music. The only issues were a repaired hairline crack in the top, and a very small finish crack in the back that you can BARELY see (I don't know HOW they got it to show up in the pictures!!) I ended up getting it for... *drumroll...* 495, plus actual shipping, WITH hard case!! yeah. I was stoked.

Congrats Phil! It's a thing of beauty, and I don't even see the scratch on the back. Sounds wonderful - both the Kamaka and your playing. That uke is definitely in deserving hands.

Thank you so much!!! Yeah, I had to run my fingernail over it to find it! It's birthday is Dec. 6th 2004... Mine is Dec.10 1994... So she'll turn 7 four days before I turn 17 ^.^ it's like it was made for me. And I was super happy with the deal I got, they had just dropped the price, so I think I got lucky :)
