    NUD - 2013 Blackbird Clara (Concert - eKoa)

    There are many occasions I find myself reluctant to carry my high-end ukes with me for a jam or outdoor event. Call me paranoid but I just don't want anything to happen to them especially by someone elses "accident" or environmental changes. As many of you are aware, Blackbird Guitars recently...
