    Gorgeous! I had a rosewood and cedar Bruko concert that was fantastic. Waiting for that DHL truck was agony, though.

    No worries. I don't think I had ever posted here at the time so there wasn't really anyone for you to remember. I sure as heck dont remember everyone I've sold things to on forums.

    Will do. Yeah cedar is awesome. I don't think I will ever sell my Kala cedar top tenor, no matter that other higher end ukes I might end up with some day. I just love those cedar overtones. Im really curious to learn how cedar impacts that quintessential bruko sound, if at all.

    Plus this Bruko will look like my Kalas baby.
