Amazing! Wowee! That is sooo keen! If it were mine, Thom, I'd go to the local Benjamin Moore and bring the uke...they can match the paint like a dream, and with a fine tipped brush, you can make that fretboard and body look like new. (not always the goal with vintage ukes, I understand).

Sweet! Do post a sound file. Wondering how you spotted that one. You'll be styling at the family gathering and beach, my man!

I saw it in Jake's queue and just kept checking. I troll Antebellum frequently and hit it just right--he just posted it.

I have an email into Tom Favilla to see if he agrees on the dating.

As soon as Jake sends me the sound clip I'll post it.

Tom Favilla to Thom from UU: "Ah, Thom. That's not a Favilla at all. Sorry, Charlie!" lol

Haha. "Yes: sorry, that's a limited edition Dolphin..."
