A uke is born!

I strung it up tonight with Aquila strings and strummed a couple chords. The strings are still stretching so it'll be a day or two before I do much playing. At one point as I was bringing the strings up to tension I heard a good CRACK but I think it was the neck shifting slightly as I don't see any problems. I'll need to pick up a new case for it now, maybe one of those nice tweed ones that musicguymic sells. I'll try to post a sound file in a day or two if the strings have settled a bit.

Next StrumMn meeting tentatively planned for Monday 8/18 at Como, mark your calendars!

Looks really nice Brian- I hope that "crack" was just some sass! Ukester

Your uke looks really nice Brian. I hope you can take it to Uke Fest. Also hope you'll bring it on the 18th. I'm anxious to hear about the festival. Have a fun time. Say "hi" to Seeso from Sukie.
