" It's been roughly a year since I picked up my uke, but today is it's completion anniversary. I swore an oath to play it every day, and I have - its traveled with me on many a jet. It is more than I ever imagined, and I've become a better player for having a Mya Moe. Thanks for making such a personal, perfect instrument. I wish for your continued success, and thanks for what you do."

- Al O.
