NUDE photos! (New Uke Day Excitement)

My 50th birthday present arrived today! (Some guys get a sports car for their mid-life crisis, I got a ukulele.)

It's a Tie Dye concert Flea with Rosewood fretboard, Maple neck, Grip Strips and Lucy's multi-colored tuners!

This puppy is cooler than the other side of the pillow. It's so full of whimsy that you get a grin just looking at it. The perfect uke for an old Deadhead like me!

Pictures will follow soonish.

I also got my very own signed and numbered copy of the DU2 Leap Year Edition songbook. (I submitted suggestions that were used so my name is on the last page!)

Thanks to my beloved wife, son and mom for the best birthday present ever!

Happy 50th b-day! :)

And I do have to say that's a totally awesome present. I have a leopard print concert Fluke. So kitsch, so retro, so fun!

If you get a tie-dyed shirt, then you'll have a camouflage uke. I always wanted the tie-dye one, but then they came out with the atomic, but then I could always be happy with mango for obvious see-my-signature reasons. I had a an hibiscus Flea happily until I realized it was garnet and black.

Play NUDE!! :D

OMG, that is such a cool present! I have a tie-dyed tenor Flea and it is a big favorite around my office. I don't have the wonderful multi-colored tuners though, and that's what makes yours super-neat. Congratulations, Happy Birthday, and let's see photos!!!!!
