    Default Mainland Chili! - New Uke Day!

    Got my Mainland "Chili" from Uke Republic last night at the SEUkers Java Jam. What a GREAT & beautiful little uke.

    The paint job is excellent, it looks & feels a lot like a Makala Dolphin w/o the cute bridge. Plays very similar as well. But did I say anything about the paint job?

    The Chili graphics are just awesome! I absolutely love it.

    CaptainLoveHandles designed all of the graphics for this new Mainland line & the "geckos", the Chili, & the REGGAE GECKO are all great motifs.

    Uke Republic sets these up w/Aquila (or other strings as well if you want - I may try some Kala Reds for the visual contrast)

    The Gecko's will make great low-to-mid-price ukes for someone on your Christmas list (like yourself!)

    Excellent! I held my Reggae Gecko up to my Makala Dolphin and compared the sizes. The Gecko has a thinner body! Doesn't suffer in sound for that, though. Mainland should have a hit on its hands.
