" My ukulele arrived today! It's perfect in every way. The finish on the wood feels like silk and it's so easy to play. All those barred chords are so much easier with the radiused fret board. The sound is beautiful, sweet with surprising volume. I can't wait to hear how it sounds as it opens up. I feel very honored to be an owner of a Mya-Moe ukulele. I'm still amazed at the personal attention I received to make sure that my ukulele was exactly what I wanted and my ukulele is by far the highest quality instrument I have ever owned."
