    Default Waiting for a Uke

    Let's say you have your heart set on a particular ukulele. You can go online, click on Buy, and you'll have it within a week.

    Or, you can place an order and wait several months for it to be built. The second option would definitely slow me down from buying. If I am ready spend a certain amount on a new uke, getting it sooner, rather than later, would definitely influence my decision about which one to buy.

    I think the longest I've waited was three or four months for my Duke 10 when the company was getting off the ground.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    You fill the wait time for the custom built by buying and selling other ones.

    I can only tell you that my Kinnard was more than worth the wait.
