Hey UU friends, just want to share what I just got from my wife for my upcoming 40th birthday. It's a 1930's Gibson style 1! I feel really lucky as I had never even held a Gibson before this one arrived. Such a great uke. As compared to my Martin and Favilla this one is very much in that league. It came with an original case and seems like perhaps it has never been played.

Mahogany front sides and back
Ebony fretboard and saddle

Thank you all for your kind words.....I'm really happy with it. I started with Martin M600 Fluro's and didn't like them on it. I put Aquila's on it and it really came alive!
