My Mainland cedar soprano showed up today, and its a beauty!
only got a little playing time on it since UPS decided to wait until the last possible moment of the evening to get it here, but just as good as I hoped, and as the aquilas stretch in, and the uke opens up I can only think it will get even better! Tommorow is my early day off work so Ill have a couple hours to myself, and although I know I should use that time to hustle out to guitar center and get a case I will sorely tempted to spend that time rushing home and getting to know this new uke!

On a related note props to Mike and Mainland for stringing it lefty for me, and getting it here so fast, I just ordered it late sunday night...35925359263592735928

Congratulations! That's a great looking wood on the back and sides. What is it? I hope the uke sounds as nice as it looks!

Congrats! I have the pineapple version and I can tell you that it will most definitely get better.

The back and sides are rosewood on these, so far it sounds pretty great to me.....thanks everyone!

Rush home to know the uke - you can always get a case later! For the weekend just think of the box it came in as a starter case...

Ha! thats totally the way I figured it too......rushed right home and tore into it. Ill still get out for a case tonight. I have two small kids and have already had a uke accidentally destroyed. So it was a lesson hard learned. The other two now hang far out of their reach, but I want to keep the mainland nice for as long possible so its going in a case with a humidifier. Should have just ordered one from mainland when I bought the uke, but I wanted to research a little more, and thought Id have time. Those guys are crazy fast shippers!

yeah the finish is ridiculous on this thing its like a wooden mirror, normally I dont like gloss finishes, or binding.......or gold hardware for that matter, but on this it all works so well......thanks everyone else as well for the kind words....
