    Congrats! I love my Rebel. I'd actually love to have one of every model they make, if I could.

    Great buy Jerry. Terrific looking Rebel. I love front & back binding.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Just for the record I was not closed closed. Just at cap. Haha. I only pipe in because someone wrote me an email thinking I was closed closed. I just hit cap early last week!

    Rebels are great! Happy new uke day! Carry on!

    Congrats, Jerry!

    I considered a similar prototype, but with the binding the ukulele no longer looks exactly like *cheesecake* from the side. A purist, I.

    I sure love mine as well, including an Acacia prototype from Mim. The outdoor pictures (on Mim’s instagram) clinched it— the maple fretboard is much more subtle in natural light, and the proto elements all work well together to very cool effect.

    My other bigger-buy ukulele is an Anuenue AMM2. Wowzer. I respect it very much, love that it offers more than I yet know how to ask of it (it’s currently more dynamic than I, heh), and we have a long future together.

    But, the Rebels capture my wacky heart.

    Zing.

    Oooh! Sorry about that! Bad choice of words. An early cap is better than no cap at all.

    There's too much "sinister" going around right now, so I went the other direction. : )

    How about - Peace, Prosperity, Harmony, Happiness. The double alliteration is just a coincidence.

    Haha, no worries! Someone sent me condolences, but I just wanted to clarify! Cap is slowing. Whew. I actually like to not hit cap. It is a lot of work. But last week was an exception.

    If anyone wants to get a sense of just how hard Mim has had to work, and how quickly she has been hitting her caps, you can always check this thread: https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com...-Entertainment I've been keeping track of her store as a way to gauge the ukulele market since back in April. I update it every week when I see that she has capped out.

    A big thank you to Mim for helping to keep the world well supplied with quality instruments with amazing set-ups!


    Jerry, congrats on the new Rebel! My mango concert Double Cream is one of my favorites to play. (It came from Mim too, by the way.)
