    Thanks for the link. I always enjoy learning about trees. I'm a retired arborist, but have never seen a mahogany tree, as they don't grow here (in the States).

    Congratulations, that's a beauty. I just love that headstock. 8 string ukes are fun to play, if you can manage it. Wifey has a Kamaka, she can make it sing. I Make it suck.

    Mike is onto something. Playing together with a bassist is a great help. But not a lousy bassist, I tried that and it messed me all up.
