    Ms Bean

    Good result!:)

    I'm impressed with Enya's customer service.
    By the time mine becomes unplayable the upgraded version should be well established, so I'll buy a new one.

    Who cares what it looks like if it works.
    I got the idea from the case for my archtop electric guitar, it has the padding under the lid lining.

    I'm with Ms Bean on capos, don't use them on ukes.
