    Default Mainlad Tenor in Easter Island, arrived

    hi UUers
    after waiting for several weeks, it finally arrived.
    as i promised to Mike@Mainlandukes, here's the picture of the ukulele n the moais.

    brief review...
    nice looking instrument
    no construction issues or defects
    keeps in tune well
    intonation up the bridge is ok (most important thing for me)
    nice action n setup

    sound.... i'm also into that "opening up of the instruments" so i know i have to wait for the instrument to settle down. here we have a very humid climate and the wood needs to breath this fresh air for some time before the final sound of the instrument appears. as i said before, there are no flaws in the instrument, and the initial sound is ok, so i think in about 6 - 12 months it'll be really opening up and sounding richer, fuller n all those words that describe music.

    i'll try to post some vids with strummin n fingerplayin for you guys to appreciate my new tenor...

    Nice picture, there's just something poetic about a Mainland uke on Easter Island...
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.
