    Just picked mine up from the music store in Canada! Opened the box in the store direct from the Martin factory. I had to pre-pay the whole uke when I ordered many months ago but when I got to the music store today, they gave me $150 back because it had went down in price! hehe Picked up a bottle of vodka after that! hehe Should keep me warm with the North Pole Uke.

    Too soon to evaluate but it is really light and beautifully engraved. Tuning must settle but intonation is good.

    Glad it arrived OK and glad you got a hefty discount.

    I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on the Konter. I've tried many different strings and the Martin 605's that came on mine was overall the best sounding strings. Very vintage sounding.

    Pictures or it didn't happen.

    I too have played around with different string sets on my Konter ie; Worth clear, brown, living water, and a custom set from Uke Logic. Of course it’s all a matter of opinion, but other strings seem to pale in comparison to the martin 605’s on the Konter. Although i’ll continue to experiment, my experience is that the original set a uke was voiced with is what seems to sound best in most cases.
