    Wow, gorgeous ukulele! The Kala folks just keep getting better and better!

    Lovely photos, too. Not a single sideways or inverted pic.

    I know that one sounds as good as it looks and it looks marvelous. I love myrtle with shades of brown and tan. I am lucky to have a Koolau with the same wood combo and it is a lifetime keeper, I am sure yours will be as well. Thanks for sharing the pictures it really is beautiful
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    Wowza! Congrats on a gorgeous instrument!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

And I also noticed that you changed the strings already, too! You didn't waste any time at all!!! Does the Aquila set that you put on it sound better than the previous set???

    Beautiful. I've been contemplating an all solid myrtle uke but haven't taken the step yet.
