    Another update: I ordered that Ohana in advance of the money coming from the State. I didn't it mention to my wife, thinking that the money would come first. Well, it didn't. So, when the Ohana arrived, I sort of snuck it into the apartment without bringing it to her attention. Then, The money did arrive, over five thousand dollars! At that point she expected me to order a Ukulele. So as not to disappoint her (and not to own up to having snuck the Ohana in), I went ahead and ordered the Romero Concert. I have it now, and boy is it a beauty! The high quality Mahogany is lovely, and the sound is superb! So resonant and mello. Then, I began drooling over the Snail I had come across in my initial search for something to get as a reward for finding the money. UAS got the best of me, and late one night, I went ahead and ordered it direct from Snail in China. I'm still waiting on that one to arrive. When it comes, I'm going to have to figure out how to handle the situation. I'm hoping I can just slip it in with the others, and that it will never be noticed. But, this is a small, one bedroom, apartment, and that trick is getting worn pretty thin. We'll just have to see how it goes.

    Congrats on the windfall! And congrats on the new ukes. Can you show us them in pics?
    And don't hide them, they might not get played....and....honesty is the best policy....I'm "not allowed to buy any more ukes", but if I plan to, I'll be sure to tell wifey first.

    I think she's going to notice.

    I'm curious, which Snail did you end up ordering? I've never played their ukes but I've heard so much praise for them I don't doubt their quality.

    In a way, that's good. You can start researching what you "need," and make a list.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    So the best and most expensive model. No doubt an excellent choice.
