Were there only 1110 other Makala dolphins out there when mine was made or does this lucky-looking number mean something else?

I have to think more than a thousand were out there.

Yet I like to think that somehow this number makes my little twangy uke special. (Some new strings might help, too.)

I have a Dolphin Blue Burst and it is numbered 1004, so I guess it's not a color code. Maybe a factory code or factory/ date code?

I suppose that may be right but then I would be upset because I called the folks at Kala and they assured me that they have been using Aquila strings on all new Dolphins for more than a year now, but my little 1111 did not come with Aquila strings. (I've ordered a set, though!)

My 1105 and 1106 didn't came with Aquila's either.

Yes, the 1105 needed some altering, and is now gonna meet my drill, I'm building a Belcat UK2000 pickup into it.

That would be my guess. And, since Makala can probably crank these things out, putting an actual serial number that lists the number of them made might be quite large.

My dolphin kinda sucks. It has 1484572 inside of it.

For what it's worth, the computer nerd in me saw "1110" and thought "hey, that's fourteen in binary".

Mine is solid yellow purchased in September 2011. The stamp says 1106. I believe it came with GHS strings, but UkeRepublic changed them to Aquila.
