" I wanted to thank you again for building such a beautiful instrument.  Beautiful sound, beautiful appearance and beautiful feel. I think it sounds like honey. You have an amazing product - not just because of the physical instrument, but because of everything.  Know that this instrument will be loved, played, shared and passed down.  We feel honored to be part of Mya-Moe."
