It's finally here! I'm heading to White Salmon, WA this afternoon to pick up the all Myrtle concert ukulele.

I am beyond words excited. I'll post photos once I've strummed myself silly.

Stop teasing, I have only just got onto the build list. I have to wait till July until my "Miss Myrtle" Tenor is in my arms. Tell Gordon and Char that Lyn says Hi.

ETF :cool:

Miss Myrtle is #1092 on the list

Congratulations! That wood looks amazing. I'm envious that you're getting yours in person. I'd love to see the birthplace of all those wonderful MM ukes!

Thanks, Stan. We are driving back now through the Columbia river gorge. The ukulele is gorgeous and sounds lovely. I can't wait to get home to play it!

Highly recommend a pilgrimage to MM if you're getting an instrument!

Yes the shop is quite something. The view is grand. And Gordon and Char's home is lovely. Not to mention they are exceptionally welcoming.

Absolutely! I'm very lucky. This uke will NOT be listed in the marketplace.

Highly recommended. There's plenty to do in Hood River, Mt. Hood, Portland and Willamette Valley (for vineyards and fruit).

Love the photos Rocko, I am just drooling over the thought that on one of those shelves sits my Miss Myrtle waiting to be born in July. Can't see me ever getting to the factory seeing as I'm in the UK but thanks to you and others I get an inside view of where my baby is being created by Gordon and Char. Opps, not forgetting you Aaron sorry.

Great Uke (very pretty indeed!) and great photos of the Shop and grounds at White Salmon! I made the Pilgrammage myself when we were picking out materials for my wife's Uke (#811) and mine (#888). Char and Gordon and Aaron are wonderful folks and they make one heck of a fine uke.
Congratulations and happy strumming!

We *love* having shop visitors. It's the best way to get a feeling for how we work & what we do. It is a great way to pick out wood. And, we far prefer delivering the instrument in person versus UPS! Thanks to all who have visited this year. And, we look forward to our 2013 visitors.

I suppose it goes without saying, but I absolutely love my new Mya-Moe Ukulele. I brought it to my Ukulele Choir last night and I solidly believe that there will be at least two upcoming orders. Everyone is stunned by the incredible beauty of this ukulele. But the real test is the incredible tone, sustain and playability of the instrument.

Truly a wonderful experience from order to pickup -- but the best part is I have a wonderful instrument for a lifetime!
