That is sweet, MGM> I have a Kiwaya 3K knock-off that looks similar to the Martin 5K (wood, coloring, etc.) that walked into your store. Sweet! Kiwaya, which is sold, too, by HMS, is a good facsimile, and sounds gorgeous. For anyone looking at MGM's lovely photos and in complete lust, contact him about a new Kiwaya!

do tell more about it--year, who traded it (did they trade it?), etc.

I ordered a Pono from Andrew and it should be at my door in (checks wristwatch) about 17 hours. cheers!

I'm picking my jaw up and wiping the drool off myself as I type. That's just gorgeous. The Dias is awesome too. I still prefer the look of a good 3K over a 5K. And, while a 3K is still out of my reach, it isn't as MUCH out of my reach as a 5K!

That is one BEAUTIFUL Martin Ukulele! I will be drooling in my sleep over this one. I happen to have an old 3K with all the appointments for which I am very fortunate, but this 5K really is really stunning.
