I ordered these two ukes earlier last week and was hoping to get them delievered before the weekend but, as late as friday midnight, the tracking still showed they were somewhere else.

I woke up early on Saturday.. had my breakfast then watched a movie before I tracked the parcel. Apparently, they were dropped at the post office (as I use P.O. Box) at 9 am, and by the time I realized it, the post office was closed already. What made it worse was that monday was Columbus day. So it was one of the longest weekend/holiday for me in recent years!

I got them today and I couldn't be happier. Still needs lots of tender loving care for sound opening up but they already do sound pretty good.

Custom Koa Works tenor with slotted head
I'iwi Cuban Mahogany soprano

thx everyone.. :) I am still enjoying them as much as I have free time. Need to address fret wire crowning on soprano but I am really really impressed with the fret board on tenor, smooth as silk..

I got them from Shawn Y. of ukulele friend. He has been the most
patient and willing helper throughout my deal with him.
