Well after a few weeks of waiting and anticipation my custom BP Tenor Kayak arrived yesterday. As UPS would have it, they made me wait till early evening before dropping it off at my doorstep. With nervous anticipation I opened the box and beheld a beautifully made instrument!!! Everything I expected and more. Superb workmanship, as good if not better than my other "babies": Pepe Romero all Koa 12 fret Tenor, Compass Rose Jumbo 14 fret Tenor Sycamore, Koolau Koa T100 tenor, and all of my other Kamakas. I was even more surprised when I did my first strum on a C chord. It sings ohhhhh so sweetly, with ample volume and sustain. Jerry Hoffman sent it strung in high C, so I immediately played it next to my pre-1940 12 fret Martin Tenor. Jerry warned me that it would take at least a month before the ukulele would open. To my surprise and to my ear, it sounds every bit as good and as mature in sound as my treasured Martin. The "quilted Mahogany" is absolutely beautiful. Thanks Jerry!!!

I was sorely tempted to take this baby to bed withy me last night:shaka: LOL my wife would have kicked me out of the bed had I done that. I am not posting any pictures today, because I did not have enough time today to snap any. I will post pics along with the specs sometime tomorrow. Until then....:music:

He meant high G not high C.

Stop bragging about your babies.

For the record he brags more about his "babies" than he does about his own children. What's up with that? :p

LOL...such a talented son...teaches me something new every time he comes home for a visit. which is not often enough. As proud as I am of my kids I belive that bragging about them is not a sign of humbleness......But let me say how proud I am of my KIDS both of them.......

Kids need to hear it.

It seems like Asian kids especially never hear it, but that's probably a separate thread . . . Which would surely get locked down quickly :)

Can't wait to see the pics and hear a sound sample. I remember the quilted mahogany looked beautiful.

LOL.

We bought my dad an iPhone the other day and he freaked out when I called him using facetime. He ran around his house showing me stuff over the phone. It was hilarious.

And pops Kim. We're waiting.
