We have been very busy since the NAMM show. We have lots of projects going on but, I am really looking forward to getting these guitars completed.
Winter NAMM 2016
Summer NAMM 2015 Review
We are back from Summer NAMM in Nashville and it was a great show. There are so many amazing musicians in Nashville and we were honored to have so many of them stop by and play our instruments. Everybody loved our ukuleles and people were pretty evenly divided in their preference between the Hollow Body with it's wood top and back and our Open Frame Ukulele. We did have our sword ukulele on display but because it sounds the same as our Open Frame Ukulele we just let people try out the Open Frame and the Hollow Body. I really enjoyed hearing such great musician and such a wide range of music from our ukuleles from flamenco finger-style to traditional Hawaiian music, blues and hard rock shredding. I can't wait for the next show.
