thanks. I know what you mean. I have all my ukes in their cases and they are kept in a humidity controlled cabinet. I have 2 cabinets now. And they are full. I keep telling myself I better stop looking at ukes as there isn’t anymore space at home.Yes, nice looking case! It makes me kind of wish I only had three or four good Ukes. Then, they could all reside in their cases. But I have so many that just storing the cases and gig bags is a major problem. But, I digress. Your Uke and case are lovely. I hope you get to enjoy them for many years to come.
