I placed an order for a Luna Honu soprano last week at HMS and it shipped today! Not sure how long it'll take to arrive in Malaysia but I definitely can't wait. Is there anything I should look out for when it arrives? Since it a laminate, I doubt it would crack and I believe HMS will package it well.

Quick edit (05-04-2013):
I'm thinking of getting some extra strings to keep in my case, does anyone have any recommendations? Or are Aquila strings the 'best' for laminates?

My advice would be to tune it up and play it! Seriously, it should be that easy with that uke.

I'd pluck its stringy nylon tendrils as if a summer fern in a wet bog.

But that's me, a wild guy. (Hey, you asked).

Yeap, I did. Got the NS mini in the end because it looked rather cool. Ah, I'm so superficial. :-/


Wear that thing out!

Oh yeah, planning to! Play till my fingers bleed then get a newer, better one (since it would seem that UAS strikes all UU forumers!)
