    Default NUD thread for everyone who received their East-Start arch-top ukulele

    Now that the ukes have shipped, I'm starting this thread for everyone who ordered an East-Start arch-top ukulele to post their impressions, reviews, or just gushes about their new uke.

    Wondering if the finish needs a little more time to "harden up" and if it needs to be handled very gently for a little while.

    As far as I know, the only finish that's needs a long curing time is nitro, and I'm sure they didn't use that on these, too expensive. They probably used standard glossy finish, which has had a few days to dry while they waited for hardware.

    Here's my latest tracking info, it's moving along. I just talked to SF Express and she said that the package should arrive in customs by next Thursday or Friday, then transferred to OnTrack delivery, where it will receive a new tracking number. I have to then call SF Express to obtain that tracking number.

    Good thing they're packed away in a hard case and packaging, wouldn't want mine to suffocate in the that terrible atmosphere. Wait a minute, it's suffocating in the case... oh noooooo!

    My wife got a phone call today. Mine's in customs awaiting an 11 charge to be paid for import duty.

    Seems like a bargain to me!
