    There are probably several of us waiting to hear what RG thinks about the concert Moon Bird.
    Keep us posted!

    I just bought a Kala Padauk Soprano through eBay, still waiting for its arrival.
    I got it because I have been wanting a Padauk uke for a long time and I do
    play Sopranos mostly

    My previous purchase (last month) was a low-g Concert made by Kerry Bannister, local
    luthier, Lynnwood, WA, made out of 1880s mahogany from a piece of furniture. Kerry
    is always on the lookout for such items and even made a uke from a leaf-shaped
    bowl/tray

    prior to that, and I'll stop with this, I ordered 3 Andoer Concert, plastic-back, electric/
    acoustic ukes for family and to share with my ukulele class members if they want to
    try a concert-size uke

    Keep uke'in', everyone!

    OOPs, forgot to answer the 2nd question:

    Currently, esp after the Soprano Padauk purchase, not really looking
    for another uke [ at this time]

    Last uke I bought was a Kamaka Baritone.

    Next uke I'm buying is a Blackbird Farallon Tenor.

    After that, no more!

    I'll definitely keep you all posted. It was a big plunge on the price, but every review I've read & sound sample I've heard have been outstanding. Kalei Gameo seems to like the Moon Bird and that's a pretty high recommendation. Now, if I can just learn to play at a tenth of his level

    I bought a Rolando banjo uke today, and I will be buying a DJ Morgan mini pineapple in May. Between now and then, who knows.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Last uke I bought was a Fred Shields all mahogany concert Backpacker. Next, I'm thinking it will be a mango or koa tenor.

    I bought a basically new Kanile'a K-3 Tenor off of Reverb at a great price about a month ago. I know I don't need another uke but I'm looking at the moon bird next...

    The last uke I purchased is actually a bass uke from Aquila, the ShortBassOne-60 that came with Thunder Red strings, which I are find are too sticky, so I changed them to La Bella/Gold Tone flatwound steel, chrome tuners and added a tailpiece to accommodate the extra length and higher tension. My next is an Aiersi bass uke that I'm going to have modified to look like a Music Man Bongo Bass.
