    Ho, Bruddah Lexxy!!!

    CONGRATS on your new W.A. Wixom uke!!! She's gorgeous and I love the rich warm tone!!!

    Mahalo for posting a review and also including a video sample, too! I have a custom W.A. Wixom tenor uke on order as well. I originally contemplated the same tone wood combination as your uke because I love the sound these woods produce together. However, I decided to try a different tone wood combination and I'm really looking forward for my build to start.

    If you ever decide to put your W.A. Wixom uke up for sale in the future ... I've got first dibs on it!!! Nah, just kidding Brah! She's a KEEPER!!!

    Aloha,

    Kimo

    p.s. I've had many conversations with Uncle Willie and he's a really super great guy!!!

    Nice review and a great looking uke! May be time to change that signature though, Lexxy.

    Thanks buddy! What tonewoods did you decide to go with? I'm sure in any case, Mr. Willie would make a heck of a uke from it! No dibs allowed on this baby! Heh heh.
