It arrived last Saturday, but it took me this long to get over my surprise. Details start here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?50066-Ed-s-Teaching-Crazy-G-Contest) and end in this video...

Hmm, I'll go ahead and say it a few more times:

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ed Gilkison!

Thanks, y'all! Here's the middle of the story...

When I PMed my address to Ed, I asked him to not tell me what second prize was. (I like surprises.) I had no clue it was even a ukulele. When the postman knocked with a uke-shaped box I thought, "Did Ed get Dolphins for us runners-up?" Opened it to find the sopranino---best surprise I've gotten in the mail in a long, long time. Almost a week later, I'm still surprised.

great video! :) congrats

yes I was so suprised too! He said an Ohana uke,I of course figured it was a starter one which I was still way thrilled about, but i didnt expect this goregous sopranino! too generous! I am gifting mine to my daughter because all i was able to afford to get her was a $25 Rouge with bad intonation, so she will trading that in for this, and I will repair and keep the rogue. she hasnt seen it yet, but Im sure she will love it. Thanks again Ed from me and mine.
