I just got the finished pics of my first Ukulele! I went with an MP. Mike was a great person to do business with. It has a cedar top and mahogany back sides. Cant wait to get it and start learning! Here she is.

Wow! That's a beauty! If it sounds half as good as it looks, I'm sure you're in for a treat!

As I mentioned in our PM's, what a great first uke! I love my MP tenor...absolutely fantastic uke. I somewhat recently decided to whittle down my uke collection and decided to sell off one of my high end tenors...the MP stayed and the Mya Moe (which was one and a half times the price) went. Mike is a great guy and he makes a fantastic instrument!

Where is this list? I'd love my next uke to be a custom.

Here is a short video of a few chords for a rough idea on how it sounds. Nevermind the off strumming, still not used to strumming with my finger:)
