    Mahimahi—curious moniker for an 'ukulele. I had grilled mahimahi for lunch yesterday...

    It looks like they sell in other countries, but not here.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Lovely instruments.

    It will be a lot of fun comparing the sizes for how they play and how they sound. Ceteris Paribus.

    They probably wanted it to sound Hawaiian but then they those the Dolphin as a logo but I like them anyway.

    I bet the tenor is made in the same factory as Ohanas and Mainlands. The body shape and headstock look the same, and the construction method at the fingerboard/neck joint looks identical. I love cedar tops, and those look great.

    Right, but eating mahi mahi doesn't mean you're eating dolphin. That would be plain nasty.

    Looks like they have mistaken the fish for the mammal

    "There are two kinds of dolphins—the fish and the mammal.
    Dolphin, the fish: mahimahi, pronounced MAH-hee-MAH-hee.
    Dolphin , the mammal: naiʻa. "

    But what you eat all depends on where you are I guess. In the fjords and sounds in Denmark, we have a small whale a Harbour porpoise which everybody enjoys seing and they follow the boats.

    When I was kayaking Greenland, one day at small village, a man came along with a Harbour porpoise cut in half over his shoulder. He was bringing home dinner.
