....My red cedar tenor just arrived today. First thing that struck me, was that the fit and finish is not very good. There are limps in the rope binding and rosette that are very noticeable, and drips in the finish that you can see from far away. If you are looking for something that is cosmetically perfect then you should look elsewhere......
THat's a shame - I know that Mike sells his 'cosmetic blemished' ukes at a very reasonable discount - as he checks them thoroughly before going out ..... have you advised him of these 'defects' (assuming you paid full price for a 'No Blemished' uke?)
I know this is an old thread, but I just love your attitude on this.Its a god suggestion, but real music shops with a real physical storefront presence (mega stores like guitar center excluded) could probably use the money more than I could. No biggie, it sounds great and since its already a blem Ill have no reason to baby it and be worried about every single scratch. This is my favorite sounding uke ever. Man I love cedar.
