I am close to sending my deposit to Jerry at Boat Paddle Ukuleles to start the build process on an M series soprano. I have read good things on-line about these ukes, but have no experience with playing one. I started a thread in the Buying Tips forum and was hoping that some of my fellow UU members could give me their feedback. If you prefer to send me a PM, instead of replying to the thread, then please do so. I am a little nervous about the cost of this custom build without ever playing one of his instruments. Any thoughts and opinions would be most appreciated.
