Well, actually, it was july 1st.

I ordered an Ohana "Vita" reproduction with solid spruce top and laminated mahogany back and sides. The other one I had I passed along to a player that takes it everywhere and teaches lots of people to play ukulele. That one is getting lots of exposure for Ohana ukes. This new one will stay in my collection. I plan to play it at renaissance and Irish festivals... among other things. It has a great look for that sort of gig.

Happy Birthday Mickey. I'm sure this one is a little sweeter given what you have been through in the last year. Enjoy the Vita.

Do the Vita ukes sound different? I love the look. It appears they put a Soprano neck on a uke with the soundboard area of a Concert.

It is a twelve-fret neck on a concert body. I like the configuration for finger-picking and it is one of the loudest ukes I have ever heard. For the price, it is an exceptional value.
