Yup I was the other Moore Better Winner....thought my refresh button would have broken down...LOL So Glad the Danny Got one too..Yes Yes
Two UU members scored this time big...woo hoo
Actually I did not know I won till the next day, I was all tired out being
on line most of the day and went to sleep....the next morning I checked my email and saw I got a email from Chuckie...and I was one
of the winners....I was blown away man..
A day later it arrived, Chuckie had sent it express delivery..it was well
packed and took me a while to get it out of the box....as I opened the case(nice case), I was shocked and amazed of the craftsmanship and beauty...Wow, I thought....the best materials, the experience and knowledge in the craftsmanship I thought...it took me a while to get my breath and look it over, not a thing wrong and simply perfect..
also the gloss finish as to a mirror reflection...the best I ever saw on a ukulele...and many have gone through these hands...
I can see how much work and love went into this instrument and without even a flaw....best of the best and rare materials...One thing
struck my eye first of all, my last name starts with a "M" and Chuckie
had inlayed a "M" for Moore Bettah Ukes...so who is gonna know it was not for me..ha ha
I think Chuckie has proven to everyone, you can build a beautiful ukulele and a great sounding one too...many times as ukers and buyers
we search for this with no avail....As I picked it up and tuned it, even
without the strings broken in yet it sounded amazing..I just simply cannot put this uke down....It sounds amazing...perfect intonation on
all strings at the 12th fret...he is a master's master at this..I had always thought I could do a good set up, but this is even way beyond
me for sure I thought...
Okay for sound, It is a sound monster with great volume, clear notes and note separation, Sweet bright tone, nice long substain, great resonation, good punch and response and big sound..
At this time, I want to Thank Mr Moore for the great work he has put into my ukulele and all the ukes he builds....he puts his heart and soul
in every instrument...Truely amazing...I hope anyone who can afford and wants one too will have the oppertunity one day...Congrats to Danny too..

Congrats again on winning

Aloha Greg,
I have not played a Lo G in a while....did not take me long to get reaquainted back though...all this time I though I was sold on re entrant,lol ...Chuckie changed me on that for the good
You know I had another Bear claw spruce and it was a custom too.. no where near this one and it was so brash and loud, All I can say is Chuckie has the knowledge to prove to me it is Not
only the wood itself, but how the luthier builds that affects the tone of a Ukulele....

Wow, Stan - I've got to say I've always admired MB ukuleles but there's usually a little too much 'bling' for me.... they're beautifully made and sound phenomenal, but I guess I'm a 'less is more' kind of guy when it comes to wood grain and inlay choices on stringed instruments. That being said - I think that's one of the prettiest ukuleles I've ever seen, especially knowing how good it must sound. Couldn't have gone to a nicer guy - enjoy it well....
