" One of the things that I find so amazing about the Mya-Moe ukuleles is that they are so light weight, even the resonator and the six string with the additional tuners. They can be played for hours and not feel heavy. The playability and acoustics are matched with gorgeous woods and barre chord players will love the radiused fretboard. Thanks to all of you for my trio of fine musical instruments."
