View Full Version : NUD: I have the best wife ever

07-25-2013, 08:14 AM
My birthday present from my darling appeared a few days early. I have the best wife ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She wants me to use it at the Kanikapila this Sunday (my actual birthday.

So it's an Ojai Valley uke. I haven't heard them discussed here, but it is really a fine instrument. Solid Koa back and sides, California redwood top. My local dealer, Anacapa Ukulele, carries them, and this tenor had so much more presence and punch, even more than the Kanile'a premium and Koaloha on the wall next to it. It came stock with Worth Browns, but I may change those out in a while.

Since it didn't happen without pix, here they are:5630756308

About the uke: Very nice! I especially like the dots in place of a rosette. Give a unique look.

About the wife: Does she have a sister? :rolleyes:

Yes she does. Beauty pageant winner, too, but very high maintenance ;)

I know this is an old thread, but I just saw and played one of these this weekend at U-Space, and it sounded great. You're right about the punch and presence. I loved the tone of this baby.

Are you still loving this uke?
