I received my Moore Bettah on saturday afternoon, woo hoo :smileybounce: I got on Chuckies list quite a while ago I even forgot when...but when he sent me an email two months ago that
my build was ready to start I was so elated.. Let me say when I opened the case, it was even more than I ever imagined and even though I saw the update photos....it was even more beautiful in person...I strummed and tuned it immediately, took all than a few minuetes that I knew this was a special sounding uke and it sounded amazing...the next day I opened the case and started to play it and noticed it opened up even further and sound beautiful rich and punchy
with a nice resonation, tone, and substain...intonation and tone perfect for me...wow I cannot stop playing this uke or put it down
many of you may know I have a milo/spruce one too and I am glad
they both sound great and different...I am so fortunate it worked out so well as both I can use for different playing styles and songs..Thank you Chuckie for making me two of the greatest ukes I've ever played and heard....I sincerly appriciate it, these ukes will never be sold by me..
PS this uke was a collaboration between Chuckie, Canoe Lady and me.....if you look at the hula dancer, it is Canoe Lady.... :) Big Mahalo's to Chuckie and Diane...

PICTURES ON POST THREE, I ASKED CHUCKIE TO POST FOR ME... :) vvvvvv

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!!!! It's all utterly fantastic, but that turquoise inlay on the dark saddle just makes me drool.

I need to get on the list to get on the list to get on the MB list.
Mahalo Plentee BL,
Yes Turquoise is my fav, love it to death.....Yes Get on the list, you won't need another uke again ...believe me... I'm worried I am gonna wear this ukulele out....ha ha :)

Stan,

:drool:

Wow!

That's a stunningly beautiful instrument. I'm sure you have many "keepers" but this must rise to the top for sure. mds725 had described the idea behind the fretboard and headstock detail to me, but seeing the pictures really showed not only what a great instrument this is, but also that it's beautiful art too.

Enjoy!

believe me when you open the case for the first time...it will be well worth it...I almost fainted when I took first strum, as his uke sounded great after 5 minuetes of first tuning...even while the
strings was breaking in I could hear Kiana's voice...it is heavenly...

It's been so fun to read all the positive comments about this ukulele, which, is, obviously, a real stunner (and a player, too, as Stan shared). What really makes me smile, though, is how much aloha Stan has spread through UU through the years--and that makes his excitement and all of our shared joy with him that much sweeter. Next time I'm on Oahu, Stan, I hope to meet up with you and we can play our MooreBettahs and share some of that great sound (as long as you don't mind my simple playing!). Congrats, again.

We need a lotto in Hawaii and they should make Waikiki like Lake Tahoe 3 or 4 Casinos..the State can use the tax money..
you have to win lotto to live in the San Francisco Bay area..

leave all the outer Islands alone but Casinos would be so nice in Waikiki

That's exactly what I told him I wanted as the 200th entry. Actually, I guess Stan wins the 200th response prize himself, since post # 201 was actually the 200th response, given that his initial post was # 1.

So he can announce that the prize for the 200th response was the milo/spruce and keep it himself.

OTOH, maybe I should get extra credit for being post # 2/response # 1.

It seems less like a line and more like a crowd of people milling about. What it actually reminds me of is what you see in a fish tank when you sprinkle a little bit of fish food on the water and the fish all come swimming/swarming up to the top.

Not that I wish to be controversial on page 21 of a wonderful thread and compare MB aficionados to fish. :)
