    Get well! 14 stitches on a finger, no joke. If this makes you feel better, I had an index finger slammed on by a tank’s empty shell disposal solid metal trap door. I still have my finger.

    Guess I’m not the only one with a wax on bare finish ukulele. The so-called satin finish on the S1 is so barely there that I can’t help myself to do something about it. But I’m not regretting at all....
