    I would use this ukulele as a sacrifice to appease the ukulele gods ( who apparently aren't happy with You ) , and throw it in a fire.

    I also vote for a sacrifice to the Hawaiian goddess Pele! Into the volcano! Send pictures!

    I personally think I'd either burn it or hang it in my shop. If I was a builder, I would consider what might happen to this one once it's released to the public or even giving it away. You never know what might happen and how it would affect your wonderful perfect builds that so many treasure. In other words, I would not want anything out there that could/would tarnish my reputation as a top-line builder.

    Just my thoughts.

    Not sure that a Hawaiian Goddess would have much influence in the NE of the UK.

    Question what will I do with it ? 1 sell it as a second ?..2 scrap it or burn it ? .. 3 try and fix it ?.. 4 give it away ?.
    # 3 is out for a start co's it would involve as much work as making a new one....Suggestions please
    Auction it off, "as is where is" and donate the proceeds to your favourite charity. That way someone benefits, as opposed to burning it where no one does.

    I was an hour from meeting the customer and delivering this uke when I caught an edge with the buffing wheel which promptly smashed the back of the uke against the buffing stand. I was going to smash it but I called the guy and asked if he would like a freebee. He said he would and is happy as can be while I'm still suffering.
    Damn

    Don't let it leave your shop. You have a huge presence in the market to protect. Keep it as your personal uke to play. (Unless you already have kept a better one.)

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    The Hawaiian Goddess Pele may not be appropriate for the UK. Maybe a bonfire would fit an Atlantic Island setting?
