My Wixom (bought used) did have some rather drastic problems, but after a bit of luthier work, it has become one of my favourites. Also, it's pretty. Have fun with yours.

That is one of the best looking ukes I have seen. I'm sure it will sound as good as it looks. Enjoy it and please post a video or sound samples when you get it.

Wow, what a lovely instrument. I am so impressed with Willie's work, we have one in our house and it is a lovely and great sounding instrument. Yes, you are required to put up a sound sample! : )
