What if I told you that you could buy a solid koa soprano ukulele for $300 new? Most would say …

Reality is that this is one of those opportunities that I could not pass up. This is the ukulele that I received at NAMM this summer. I don’t think Jorma thought I was serious at first when I first talked to him. He let me play some of his ukes that were on display, but you really can’t hear them on the noisy floor of the convention center. I asked if he would possibly let me review his least expensive model. He said he needed to think about it and for me to come back in a few hours, I did. He then still needed to think and he wanted me to come back just before the hall closed for the night, I think he thought I would forget or not be able to find him again, but I did. He then pulled out a beautiful uke from a box and handed it to me. Over 2 month later I am ready to review it.
