    Default They're Here

    I received two packages from HMS this morning. It's been quite cold here in Connecticut, so I'm going to let the packages warm up before I open them. I don't how long I'll be able to resist. It took a little over a week for them to arrive. More pictures to come

    Maybe crack open the boxes and put them in a room that's not too warm? The uke is usually in another box inside the big box. You could always call HMS to confirm the double boxing.

    Well, I was able to refrain from opening the boxes for two hours.

    That's longer than I could've waited. Those are foam cases and are still pretty well insulated. I really wonder how cold it gets inside those cases. Here I'd partially unzip the cases to allow some airflow to occur.

    The plot thickens!! I'm curious as heck now to see what's inside! A new Pono? An Islander? I rule out Kamaka since it's not in a Kamaka hard case... lol

    I'm also into the mystery! Looks like one case is slightly larger than the other. Hopefully an Islander! They are beautiful! I am also waiting on one and would not be able to wait this long!

    I'm new to ordering through the mail. I've only got my first uke in January of last year and it was from guitar center. If ordered online and it is mailed, do you really have to wait to open it? Can it damage the uke if you don't?

    I made it another hour, but that was all I could take.
