Patrick - The waiting was hard -- but so very worth it -- the Queen has already exceeded my expectations! She sounds as good as she looks!

It's been repeated here many times, but the entire Mya-Moe process is a fantastic experience. You can feel that Gordon and Char really want their uke owners to be satisfied with their instruments and the care and attention they give to the process is evident from start to finish. Best yet, they're really nice people and it feels good to be a part of their world. :)

Thanks all for tolerating my intolerable excitement! :)

Yes, you were spot on. Pictures just don't do this uke any justice. It's hard to capture all the great colors and grain patterns.

I am so thrilled that I opted to play down every other option (headplate, rosette, fret markers, purfling) because the effect is exactly as I envisioned - one can only look at the wood!

Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled!!!!

Roxhum - Thank you - a little suspense is always fun. I actually sent the videos to Char and Gordon -- because I wanted to tease them a little bit. ;)

Sound sample, eh. Gotta work on that! Goal is to be worthy of this uke! :)

What a gorgeous instrument! I could almost hear a small intake of breath as you opened the case and saw her for the first time. Awesome.

Very very classy - congratulations! You will do it justice simply by caring for it and treating it with the respect it deserves, and the music you make will reflect that.
