I just received my brand spankin' new Willie Wixom concert uke. Solid koa, took hundreds of pix, and will upload them as soon as I figure it out.
I am tickled pink right now, so what if I can't work?

Are you able to play it? It would be torture to have a brand new custom uke and have to wait to be able to play!

Yeah, I can play it a little, but it is so loud and bright that it makes this headache worse. But who cares, right?

Those pics, they are tiny, but I think I spot some lovely koa and a slotted headstock FTW. Now take some pills and get over that headache so you can get strumming! :)
