Many of you know that I have a Custom Boat Paddle Kayak Tenor being built and almost completed. Well while in Hawaii the other week I stopped by HMS and fell in LOVE. She sounded sooooo sweet and like a siren called out to me. It was as if she was created just for me. How did the luthier know what I was looking for? You can guess what it is, but who is the maker? Pepe Romero!!! The irony of this is that, being from San Diego, I had to come to Hawaii to find one of Pepe's ukes...and he lives in San Diego...go figure.

I'll post my personal review at a later time. Suffice to say that this is one of the best sounding ukulele that I have ever played. Here are some pics.

I'll post better pics when I return to San Diego. I posted this from my iPad so this may have been the problem with the reproduction. Sorry

Congrats. A guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do. If I ever get to Hawaii, I'm buying a uke regardless of who is building what on the mainland.
