Eleuke Giveaway

April 1, 2010 by Tim


CONTEST ENDED – Winner will be announced soon!!!

I reviewed it, I loved it, Now you can have it!!

The one being given away

I am going to giveaway the Eleuke that I just reviewed to one lucky reader.

Why?

Honestly I don’t feel right keeping the instruments companies let me keep after I review them. Not all of them will be given away on the site. I will also have some at the festivals that I attend, so watch in later posts for where I will be this summer.Β 

How?

It is very simple to enter, just comment on any post between now and April 30, 2010. Make sure to enter your e-mail address, which is how I will contact the winner. I will not send any other things, you are not signing up for spam I promise.Β 
As much as I would love for you to all subscribe to my blog, and well you are here you could, I don’t want to bother people with more e-mail that they will ignore.

Rules:

1. One entry per person, you can comment as many times as you like, but you will only be entered once. Please just be cool and not fudge this with multiple e-mail addresses.

2. If you are related to me you cannot enter. Sorry, I will find you all great ukes if you want one.

3. If you live in the continental U.S. I will send it to you for free, otherwise you will have to pay for shipping.

4. Any inappropriate or spam posts will be deleted and entry nullified.

5. If the ukulele is not claimed in 30 days I will find someone else who wants it.

6. Must be willing to let me post a picture of you and the uke, with first name and location, on Ukeeku.com.

7. Contest ends April 30, 2010

Oh and also…..I would be a happy man…..a happy man indeed!

    I really want an electric uke (don’t yet have one),

    I agree that friction tuners are nicer, but I can live with the “ears”.

    Cheers,
    -Mattman

  27. Brad says:

  28. Christine says:

    That is such a cool looking uke. I wonder – would I sound better or worse playing along to my own ipod? I hope I get this one so I can wail one out with Patsy Cline

  29. Paul December says:

    I was looking to buy one, but …
    … now I’ll wait to see if I get one for free!

  30. jayson says:

    my son only likes to play electric things, i started him on acoustic guitar but no had to go and buy him an electrc guitar, wanted him to learn uke so we can play together but no wants and electric one, so if you are giving one away, my son would put it to good use i know that

  31. Staff says:

    I’d feel better if this wasn’t posted on April 1, but I’ll take my chances πŸ™‚

  32. Tristan says:

    Freeeebieee

  33. Mark Laskey says:

  34. This is great. So nice to share such a wonderful instrument. If I win, a lot of people will play it. A bunch play all of my other ukulele already!

  35. Nice contest and a good way to let me know about your site…. I bookmarked it!

  36. Hey, I just thought….. Is this an April fools?

  37. Christopher washy says:

    I just started playing the ukulele two weeks ago and i love it so muc. i never realized it was a serious instrument but it is very complex and versatile. Check out me playing some classical

    o yeah and please let me win ukulele

  38. Steve Roberts says:

    Cool Blue….

  39. Joel says:

    I would absolutely love to have this ukulele. How will we receive the ukulele? Will shipping be free?

  40. Chuck Wilson says:

    I like electric/blue.

  41. georgia says:

    ok so i have a feeling that Black Dog would sound a little better on this than my $29.95 (and thats australian dollars so ever cheaper for you!) ukulele with a dolphin machine head and no ability to stay in tune haha.
    its just such a beautiful little creature!

  42. daniel says:

    hey, i’ve been moseying ’round your website and it’s really insightful! your reviews have been relly helpful : )

    to share the gift of music like this and give somebody, anybody, the oppurtunity to recieve an amazing little instrument to bring music to the people around them, to create, and to have fun is truely a noble thing!
    you’re a hero, bud
    pax

  43. violet says:

    wow, simply amazing : )

  44. Ben F. says:

    I would love to own that Uke!

  45. Ron Knaus says:

    This is a very thoughful project and pulling both groups together is a very cool concept. Let’s call it Ukeukeeku. Best, Loon

  46. CoLmes says:

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Im In

  47. Ernie says:

    Very cool idea, and a very generous one!

  52. Joe Persons says:

  53. luke says:

    oh boy! an eleuke!!!!!!!!!

  54. Adam says:

    Count me in….

    Bluuueeee UUUUUUUUkkkeee….. you saw me strumming alone….. πŸ™‚

    My fingers will remain crossed until April 30…. difficult to strum, but I will manage….

    Mahalo!

  55. Gary Erickson (lumpy) says:

    I want to play with a band and this would be great to use so they could hear me.

  56. Mike says:

    I really like the color. I’ve thought of buying or building an all electric uke. Your review of this one sparks my interest again. Chances are that if I won this uke I would give it to one of my ‘wanna-be a uke player’ friends – after I’ve broken it it very well first. But then again I may keep it and give one of my other ukes to a friend.

  57. Kristy says:

    I’ve always been interested in the Eleuke but have never played one. Very helpful review!

  58. Carl says:

    Very interested in the Eleuke, thanks for the review. Also anyone ever install a Fishman Matrix pickup on a Koaloha tenor?

  59. Doctroid says:

    I’m in! I’m in!

  60. Jim says:

    I have been wanting to pick up a new musical instrument for a while now… I have been leaning toward the harmonica, but this seems like a sign from god…

  61. Mark says:

    Hi from Milwaukee (and the Milwaukee Ukulele club)! I’d love to be entered in the giveaway, thanks!!

    Best,
    Mark

  62. Jonny says:

    I hope i win!

  63. PorkLover says:

    Very cool give away! Congrats to whoever wins it (hope its me)!

  64. Gary C. says:

    Thanks for such a great blog site. One of the marvels of the ‘net is that people with specialized interests from all over the world can get together easily in one place. Impossible only a few decades ago.

  65. PerrBear says:

    Awww this is so sweet of you! πŸ™‚

  66. ToanIsAnIdiot says:

  74. justin brown says:

  75. Amelia says:

  76. Marq says:

    Electric ukuleles look awsome =)

  77. brendan says:

    awesome idea

  78. axel says:

  79. Will Deuel says:

  81. Ralph says:

    Would be nice to win for sure.

  82. Nathan Melcher says:

    Generosity and a Half. Thank you for offering this contest.

  83. Mark Robinson says:

  84. Leland says:

    I’ve always wanted an electric uke.

  85. CDon says:

    What a generous thing to do… Nice blog also!

  86. coyote says:

    It’s a pretty uke, and I wouldn’t mind having it. But I can’t help but think that it would be so much nicer in some beautiful hardwood.

  87. Jordan Coles says:

    Hello! I would LOVE this :]
    I have a few shows coming up soon this would be AMAZING!!!

  88. Sue Williams says:

    Thanx!

  90. Victor Gim says:

    oh man! what a give-a-way! count me in!

  91. Alex says:

    Great contest! Count me in!

  92. Spike Gomes says:

    Well, the chances are better than the Powerball and I do love me some Eleukes. Let’s give a shot, shall we?

  93. Colin S says:

    Always room for another ukulele. Especially a blue one. Thanks for your generocity.

  94. Matt Stowe says:

    Awesome awesome Awesome!!!! Thanks Tim

  95. Morgan Andersen says:

    I need a new uke as my old one has been worn out.

  96. Areesha Singh says:

    I would love to have a electric ukulele. I love playing different instruments ❀

  97. Tristan says:

    I WANT AN ELEUKE SOOO BADLY!!! I have been playing for four months, and I have really got the feel for it. I have a mitchell, but having a new eleuke to play with my brother and stepbrother would be awesome. THANK YOU for posting this, you are very kind! : )

  98. Camille Y. says:

    If you choose me, I will be extremely grateful. I teach fourth graders, and having a uke at school to use with my class, would be very fun and beneficial. As our school district begins their budget cuts, our music programs are always under scrutiny to be eliminated….year after year. If that is so, I don’t want our students to miss out on any opportunity to learn about music–even if that means I have to teach it myself, versus a music specialist.

  99. Sean says:

    Great contest & a great prize!
    I love plugging my uke into my Marshall & letting it rip. An electric uke would really complete that package.
    Good luck to everybody!
    S.

  100. Brian Amato says:

    I’ll just strum along, waiting til you pick me πŸ™‚

  115. Bert Weeks says:

    Eleukes sound awesome. I always wanted to play one. Please enter me for the prize!

  116. Jacob Hicks says:

    Well, I was thinking about picking one of these up so as not to disturb my room mates when we get to afghanistan. Why not throw my hat in the ring for a free one? This is very generous of you, btw.

  117. Fred Brown says:

    Hi there. I’m only 3 weeks to the uke but over 40 years in music. I have the bug bad! I was tipped off to your giveaway and have been looking at these unique babies on the web. Being in Canada (Toronto area) there is still no place to go and “touch and feel” more than one or two ukes at a time. Very frustrating! Anyway…put my name in the hat for that giveaway (or for any others down the road too!) Thanks.

  118. Big Daddy says:

    Love the eleuke. Thanks for holding this contest. Checkout the SnakeOilers @
    http://www.SnakeOilers.com

  119. DeG says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these.. πŸ™‚

  120. John says:

    Count me in, I’d love one of those babies!

  121. Sam says:

    hey, why not? count me in.

  122. Paz says:

    WOULD LIKE. Also, I put up a little post on Ukulala about contests like this. The gist: it’s a win-win-win. So I hope I win-win-win that electric uke!

  123. Kim says:

    Yay! Ukulele! Thanks.

  124. tyler says:

    I’ve been curious about exploring an electric uke, this would be a great way to try one out.

  125. Amandine says:

    I like the color, and would really like something better than my ukulele that will not stay in tune for more than two minutes. I would obviously like to win.

  126. blake says:

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  127. petik3 says:

    pick me πŸ™‚

  128. Adam says:

    I’m in aswell! πŸ™‚

  129. Keo says:

    that is a very good looking uke. it would look reeeally nice with my mookulele (cow patterned fluke)

    take it easy.

    – Keo

  130. beep says:

    I would like this bluekulele!

  131. reka says:

    Pick meee!!!! It would be a great gift for my boyfriend’s birthday!!! πŸ™‚

    • Tim says:

      Presently no tenor cutaway, the closest thing that I know of is a OU5LCE. it is a long neck concert. OS does have a sweet tenor, the OU7T

  132. andy says:

    OOOOOoooh full electric….. I’m in!!!!!

  133. “If you are related to me you cannot enter. Sorry, I will find you all great ukes if you want one.”

    wanna be my new brother?

    would love an electric uke…all I gots is one lanikai

  134. diego says:

    i’ve been saving up for a uke. i’d really like to learn once i get done with my physical therapy program.

    did i mention i saved a girl-scout troop that was trapped in a burning building? that’s why i’m in physical therapy, i sure hope i get partial use of my legs back like the doctor said

    no matter what the outcome of my therapy i’ll be a bit of a shut in though so i’m either going to take up the ukulele or start drinking to pass the time.

    i guess it’s up to you.

    thank you,

    diego

  135. ashley preston says:

    great review!!!
    i just started to play the ukulele and i have noticed that when i play sitting on my back porch, a breeze always starts. its amazing.

  136. Phil says:

    Eleuke’s are the coolest, would love to have one so I could be cool too!!!!

  137. dz says:

    Why? Can you not keep it yourself?

    • Tim says:

      I could, but really why should I be the only one who gets something out of this. Also If I keep the ukes I get it could seem like payment for a good review. I did really like this one. I have some in the pipe that I did not like as much.

  138. maz says:

    That thing is so awesome! I would LOVE to call it my own!
    I’m from Germany and practice playing Ukulele for 3 Weeks now, and it’s so cool!

    Best Instrument Ever, thanks for your Blog! πŸ˜‰

  149. Tom McMahon says:

  167. Eric says:

    Jo… I think you should pick me for the Eleuke… We should play more Ukulele here in Germany πŸ˜‰

    I’m from MΓ©xico but live in Hawai’i in the Island of Kaua’i, and i would pay the shipping if i win! Count me in! Mahalo! πŸ˜‰

  183. Audrey Walker says:

    …if only..

  184. donna says:

    fingers crossed!

  185. Eric says:

  187. kilaana says:

    Wow! That cool blue uke would be an awesome little brother for my blue Fender Strat! I want one!!!

  188. milena says:

    i just bought my first uke on friday. i love it so much.

  189. alexis says:

    This uke will be the baseline of my healthcare overhaul. High blood pressure? Feeling stressed? Burned out? Tore up or Torn down? Grab a uke, two strums, and a smile! An electric blue uke can move the unsmiling disgruntleds of the world a little bit closer to the land of the gruntleds! Only uke can make me happy.

  190. Robert says:

    I chose the ukulele for a senior project, and I really enjoy it. Been on my Kala Mahogany Spruce Top Concert ukulele, would love to move up to a tenor. This is a wonderful opportunity for some one to share the wealth. Thanks for being so generous Tim!

    Cheers,

    Robert.

  191. Stephanie Painter says:

    This is fantastic! I really love Ukuleles and the sound they emit. My favorite thing to do on them is cover older rock songs like Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta” or Joan Jett haha It always makes me people re-think how the Uke can be used! Thanks for the chance to win such a rad Uke. If I’m chosen I PROMISE I will put it to good use while street performing and playing everywhere I go! Taking over the WORLD note by note! Haha

    Love,
    Steph

  192. Ingvar says:

    Wow! I do love that little blue thing!
    So much that I yesterday had to buy me a uke so I can learn how to play it,
    before you so generous will send it to me. πŸ™‚

    Peace, love and so on from Sweden
    Ingo

  193. ENG says:

    That is a pretty sweet uke. I sure do think I would look good playing it, and trust me I need all the help I can get to look good.

  194. Anna Battaglia says:

    Ahhhh I want an Eleuke!! πŸ˜€

    I’ve played the ukulele for a while. Owning this would probably make me the happiest person alive.

  195. I’m new to the ukulele thing. I was so lucky to get an Oscar Schmidt ukulele on craigslist from a man who wanted to focus his energies on the accordion instead. I would love to win this contest. I never win anything.

  196. Nate says:

    Wow face!
    I’ve been dying to get my hands on one, but haven’t had the cash to do it yet.

    I would love to win!

  197. Joshua M. says:

    Great site! I think it’s a great resource for uke lovers like me. If I win the electric uke, I promise to take it to India this fall and busk with it.

  198. Zach Schmitt says:

    Hey there, I stumbled upon this site randomly on the side of my facebook, but I would love to win an electric ukulele. I’ve been playing the ukulele for a few years now and I have a nice acoustic one but I’m interested in seeing what the eleuke would be like. Hopefully you’ll pick me, thanks!

  199. John O'Connor says:

    I play both ukulele and u bass. This instrument would allow me to play harder music. Nice looking instrument as well. I hope that I do win, although I’ve never actually won anything in my life. Thanks.

  200. Charles Oatley says:

    I have been playing ukulele for about a year now. I have played guitar for many years but now i prefer ukulele. An electric ukulele would sound cool.

  201. diego says:

    i play the egg shaker & the triangle. this looks kinda complicated but i’d like to give it a go

    • flap doodle says:

      @diego – the ukulele is just like playing the egg shaker, just heavier and can also be used as a weapon.

  202. Seth Weddle says:

    Imagine flying 8,000 feet above the ground, tied to some sort of mythical creature of sorts, while gathering avid amounts of gold. Eating all the chocolate you could ever imagine. Now picture the mythical flying creature granting you a wish.

    —Electric ukulele puh-lease?

  203. Mark says:

    Please help this ukulele enthusiast who just happens to be a poor graduating senior in college. Can you say, “Best graduation present ever!” I promise to pass along this gift by playing beautiful music to anyone willing to listen. I’ve already gained recognition for spreading the word of the uke on my school’s campus, and now I’m ready to bring it to the real world!

  204. Andrew says:

    Mmm, that would be pretty awesome.

  205. Wayno says:

    What a wonderful gesture! I’m throwing my virtual hat into the ring.

    Thanks!

  206. Eric Stetson says:

    That’s a really awesome gesture! I’m just now graduating with a degree in music composition at Georgia Southern University – at my senior recital I’m playing the ukulele on the stage of the performance hall – the first time that’s ever been done here. =D Time to spread some aloha in the south. I’m moving across the country to Sacramento at the end of May to work as the composer on an independent film project – I know if I got this thing I could use it in the score, not only that but eleuke and ukeeku.com would have exposure in the credits. Please consider me!

  207. Such a beautiful instrument! I’ve been really looking into get an electric Uke since all my friends play plugged in! and I just have my acoustic Uke! 😦

    Been playing for about 9 months and keep discovering how versatile and convenient it is (as also a keyboardist, it’s so difficult to being pianos with) Been writing almost solely on the Uke these days (he’s called Dave) and enjoying the whole new musicality it affords me!

    So… Please enter me in the Uke give away!!!

    Thanks!
    Samwise

  208. Stuart Miller says:

  242. rashelle says:

    yes, please, & thank you.

  243. Ashley Bemis says:

    This is probably one of the sweetest instruments I have ever seen. I was looking into getting a Ukulele because I think they are so cute until I saw that they had Eleuke’s out which made me want one even more!! I am in college right now so money is a little hard to keep seeing as I have to pay my bills but me and my friends were thinking about starting a band and having a Eleuke would be one of the most amazing instruments to have!! I am in Pennsylvania where most of the music is metal and and emo but being able to start a band with an Eleuke would be a great change in the music scene here! I would love to win your contest! If i don’t no hard feelings, its just I think it would be great to own one of these!!! Thanks dude for the chance!!! πŸ™‚

  244. Ashley C says:

    This would be a great oppertunity to win this!! I love musical instruments and winning would be like the highlight of my year!!

  245. Sarah says:

    This is awesome! πŸ™‚

  246. guy says:

    witty remark wishing to win…..

  247. Mr. Gumbo says:

    Beautiful instrument and the sound is excellent. Yes, it would make life much easier than trying to use a mic. Thank you so much for the informative review.

  248. Ben DeWalt says:

    I would love this Uke!

  249. Christopher Howat says:

    cool hope i win

  250. Eiles says:

    I’m in !

  251. Jeremy says:

    Wow! It’s very generous of you to give this away…. I like anyone else here would love to be the lucky recipient. thanks for giving back to the uke community!

  252. Hasan says:

    wow, thanks alot for giving this uku away. i would love to win it. thanks! this is my entry btw ha.

  253. gitarwmn says:

    Oh what a wonderful uke. Count me in please.

  254. This is a really interesting ukulele!

  255. Peter says:

    This will be my first ukulele~

  256. I am a newbie to ukulele and I just have fell in love with it. My wife thinks I’m nuts but she finds me playing it every day. I would love to expand my collection of 1 with this eleuke!

  257. Desiree says:

    Wow. I love the developing concepts of a uke, and this is no exception. I haven’t been playing for very long but the ukulele is one instrument I’ve really got into. Pffbt, one day I’ll have a whole collection. I feel pretty inspired whenever I hear a tune from my little Lanikai. Maybe if I’m lucky enough, I’ll get this strapping young uke.

    But then again, luck always seems to surpass me, but with as simple as the requisites are for this contest, I might as well put in my two cents, right?
    πŸ™‚

    P.s.
    Your review really made me want this. I’m usually pretty anal about what I want quality wise, and I’m quite sold with this one. Touche.

  258. Desiree says:

    Oh. And another thing.

    Good luck.

    There are soooo many replies to this.

  259. Desiree says:

    I’m not trying to create multiple replies..but I keep coming up with things you should know. πŸ™‚

    I play my uke until the wee hours of the morning..(it’s when I’m at my peak playing ability). And unfortunately have an angry, old, Asian woman who sleeps upstairs.. With the built in amp and headphone jack, I’d totally play my uke like a boss and jam all through those late night/early morning hours.

    And going out to the guy who said it will go for playing at a specialized children’s hospital…low blow man. You can’t say no to that.

    Thats all.
    πŸ™‚

  260. F. Murray says:

    Okay. Sign me up for the contest.

  261. Hansol says:

    I am dreaming of a lovely blue uke, please count me in.

  264. Jessica R says:

    What a gorgeous uke and sweet idea! I’m in. πŸ™‚

  266. Michelle says:

    cool blue!

  267. Tavi P says:

    Right on. Hope I have the ukulele gods on my side.
    Thanks,

    T

  268. Emily Dillon says:

    That’s a pretty awesome uke, my boyfriend is pretty much in love with ukuleles right now but doesn’t own one. I wanna suprise him with one for his bday, saw this and thought “why, not?” haha.
    Really awesome, crossing my fingers I guess but best of wishes for everyone. πŸ™‚

  269. Rahman says:

    Such sweetness! I could jam so sweetly…….

  270. kim says:

    Thanks for you excellent postings. I have been teaching myself uke by following the videos on easyukulele.com. Next, I’m ordering a strap like the one you recommended. Thanks for your hard work!

  271. Alexandra Aird says:

    Sweet!!! I’ve wanted a uke for a while now.

  272. Zi says:

    Meowww… me me meoww please >^.^<

  273. David says:

    Nice review, now let’s hope I get to win the uke
    If I don’t I’ll have to try to get one of these here in Tokyo πŸ˜‰
    Seems like a perfect fit for all my electronic noisemakers…

  274. Charles says:

    Please enter me in the drawing. I’d be happy to supply a picture of me with the Uke! πŸ˜‰

  275. Ryan says:

    choose me, please.

  276. David Yam says:

  281. tom achtenberg says:

    Aloha! Brucke (Pahoa HI)

  283. Samson Sang says:

    The uke looks like a mini electric guitar. The cool blue reminds me of Elvis Presley.

  284. Gail says:

    I want this for my daughter, she has two ukes already, but it would be a lovely addition to the collection.

  285. Joe Harr says:

    Looks amazing! Would love to give it a good home.

  286. Adam says:

    I would SO gig with this! And it matches the motorcycle helmet my mom used to wear.

  287. Mike White says:

    Pretty rad contest going on here, and I’m sure we’d all love to adopt the little fella. I’d be stoked to be the lucky recipient.

  288. Hey! Beginner ukelele-er here lol and I would love a nice one to learn on rather than the cheap toy I have. Thanks!

  289. Tieffelin says:

    I had the chance to “test” this uke at the Paris Uke Fest and it was brilliant!
    I was hoping to buy one but it seems that it’s a real challenge in France ;o)

    Well, it’s actually nice to play and not disturb people (like baby child is sleeping near) i was planning also to buy one for that.

    It’s fun in blue color, the one i tried was rosewood i think.

  290. lazyscranton92 says:

    I love playing ukes. The blue looks really awesome, whoever wins this thing is gonna be super lucky! Good luck everyone!

  291. David Allen says:

    Very nice of you. I just started learning how to play the ukulele and I only own an inexpensive model. Thanks!

  292. Laurie Seamans says:

    Pick me please! I wanna go electric and rock my neighborhood in the woods of NH. Payback for all the nights the summer people kept us working folk awake on summer weeknights with their loud rock n roll music. Some Crazy G and Devil & the Deep Blue Sea on a uke with the amp cranked up to 11 sounds like sweet revenge to me!

  293. Gary J says:

    I love these Ukes. What a great idea. I would love to win one to join my two acoustic ukes!

  294. Alexander W says:

    whoo, looks awesome

  296. Mark says:

  297. Qwin says:

    Yay electric ukelele!

  298. Hayley says:

    I play my Ukulele every day and it is the most crappy $10 thing but all I can afford. But I am a gun at it I tells you.
    I would play so hard on young blue there.
    For sure.

  299. Wolf Rendall says:

    OMG! Ukeleles make me so happy!

    If I won this I would puke my guts out until my head exploded!!
    -out of sheer joy

  300. Cal Chan says:

    i would love to have it me and my 3 other friends want to form a 4 person ukulele group, we sound pretty but its just i have been only doing the side work since i don’t have a ukulele unlike them. i would love to actually play with them in our band.

    hope you pick me! thank you

  301. Andrei K. says:

    I’ll give it a home.

  302. Melissa says:

    Ahhhh! I keep leaving (not so very) subtle hints to my husband that this would make a good birthday/college graduation present for me! So you should save him the hassle of deciphering wife-speak and just pick me for the giveaway!! πŸ™‚

  303. Phil Losacker says:

    I’d love to win. I’m new to the uke and all of a sudden have UAS – this could prove to be expensive! Winning a new uke would be a great way to kick-off my acquisitions. Thanks for the contest.

  304. Shelly Elkins says:

    What an awesome thing to do for your Uke fans!! Thanks for letting me enter!

  305. Merrill Morris says:

  308. Alicia says:

    This would make my year. Seriously.

  309. Nathanial Riggs says:

    It would be awesome to get this.

  310. kimo says:

    give me this uke or i will drown a kitten

  311. Tandra K says:

    Wowzers…I want a Ukulele…! I don’t have one….is it easy to learn??..Maybe I could make a Ukulele group up here in NODAK!….:) This is cool, all the info on your site….

  312. Rex says:

    I’d love to have this uke, so I could enter the “2010 Eleuke Challenge”

  313. Bennett says:

    I would really love a new eleuke, i can’t afford one myself and it’d be greatly appreciated if you sent me one, and i’d gladly let you post a picture of me with it πŸ˜€

  314. Naomi Greaves says:

    Wow this looks awesome, would love to get my hands on it!!!

  315. Jim Howitt says:

    New to play ukuleles but this looks awesome. Would go very nicely with my tenor and soprano.

  316. Benjamin says:

    You are awesome, is that not so?

  317. I did not see my post?? Anyway…I am a good persona and I would practice it EVERY day.
