Alan, that's a wonderful original song. Very special!
As a father of 3 grown kids and 8 grandchildren, I don't need another child, but that Mainland Uke...well, I'm thinking I might need another addition to my uke family. The cedar concert got my attention. :music:

PS- would like to hear more how you rate your new Mainland tenor with others you own or have played?

It's a concert sized Mainland.
I'd compared the red cedar uke with pics of my old concert Jenny (Bushman) and the Mainland uke looked more carefully prepared. There were nicks in the Bushman that seemed to occur on the assembly line. No evidence of that on the Mainland. The ML sounds better I think:
