    Default beginning my wait for a SynergyInstruments.com full Carbon Fiber Concert

    YUP, I pulled the trigger, pressed the button, took the step, etc on
    the purchase of a Synergy Instruments full CF Concert on Sat 10/10/2020.
    i figured it was an auspicious time... and I'm not getting any younger...
    and other seemingly reasonable justifiable rationalizations
    after all the USD price looks like a great discount compared with the
    CAD price! I know, I know it's really the same cost. but humor me a bit.
    Anyway, I've had this purchase on my mind ever since I learned that
    Synergy (a Canadian CF fabricator) was planning on manufacturing
    full CF ukuleles.
    It's supposed to be a 4-6 week wait, so I did it!
    now I'm in the 'anxiously-awaiting-the-delivery' mode.
    This purchase is supposed to be an incentive to and a reward for cleaning the house in
    anticipation of an eventual move to HNL in a year or two.

    just wanted to let you know that some of us, well 'me' at least [what awkward grammar],
    are ordering Carbon Fiber ukuleles.

    keep uke'in',

    PS anyone else bite the bullet?

    Very nice! I ordered 2 sopranos, one CF and one ekoa. Im curious how different the sound will be between the two. Just looking for the ultimate travel uke and maybe something to keep in the car.

    Just as an aside, I chose to order a Concert with a 15" scale because the description of the Soprano mentioned a
    13" scale and I wanted more room at the nut and I thought the 15" scale would give me at least one more fret at the nut, possibly 2 ()

    I'm hoping the larger Concert body will not be too large vis-a-vis the Soprano body.

    Thanks, Kyle!

    Congratulations! The concert is the one I'm thinking about. I'm looking forward to your review. Did you request anything special (setup, strap button ...) ?

    On my sopranos I requested gotoh UPTs and side dots instead of top dots on fretboard. They were happy to do it for me, slight upcharge for the tuners.

    No special options, just the standard issue

    I may put a sticker on the headstock and one or more rubber ducks
    Impaled on the tuning posts.

    How are things going with my concert ukulele? Inquiring minds want to know
    I placed my order on the 10th and I know I need to allow 4-6 weeks, but I’m
    Getting anxious.
    BTW I noticed that on your website it appears the Concert is strung with a low G.
    Will all concerts come with low G? I mostly prefer reentrant but low G would also be OK.
    Thanks for humoring my anxiety about the build timeline.

    Keep uke’in’,
