Mya Moe number 822 (http://www.myamoeukuleles.com/uketracker.php?trackingNumber=822&submit=Track) entered the world today after a 9 month gestation period.
She probably came in kicking and screaming...now to wait for the final tattoo "Mya Moe #822, made for The Cloverdale Kid".
Curly Cherry and Sitka Spruce- anyone know what strings I ought to use to make her sound more warm (snicker)?
Beyond excited

Congratulations, Dave! It's common knowledge that the quickest way to warm up a set of strings is to coat them with lots of The Cloverdale Kid's fingertip grease.

Looking forward to hearing this soon-to-be beauty in a few weeks!!

Neck being attached to body. Today found me at Wine Country Uke Festival and well darn it- weren't Gordon and Char taking the day off? I tried to compel them to go home and work on old 822 while I watched their table, but they were wise to me. Oh well, the only thing better than scrimping and saving for months, lamenting over wood choices, and waiting for what seems like an eternity for your uke to arrive is a conversation with the folks who are making it.
By the way- I played a Mya Resonator for the first time today. Fortunately I was smitten. Should be here in two weeks

That is sweeeeettt! Can't wait to hear it in the next challenge!

Congratulation! Couldn't go to a more deserving guy.

09-18-2012, 05:11 AM
I took great classes at Wine Country Fest, met Gordon and Char, talked with them about my MM #851, hung with friends, etc.....
But the part of the day that really has stuck with me is the impromptu virtuoso yoyo performance by TCK at lunch. Dave's many talents on display! Enjoy that uke and I hope you can join us on a Thursday. If you come we'll have at least 3 MM ukes to accompany Ryans's 100 year old wonders.

Wow, that is one beautiful ukulele. I can't wait to hear what it sounds like. By the way, it was great to meet you at the Wine County Uke Festival.

Thanks all for joining me on this adventure- looks like the truck ride is only going to be 2 days (YES!!!)
Jackwhale and Caukulele- excellent meeting you both (and thanks for the nice comments on my yo-yoing...brings my forum handle to life ;)) I will certainly make a Thursday in Spring when I am on break.
