" Cary, My new sycamore classic Tenor is beautiful! And it plays and sounds absolutely fantastic! I am so blown away by the resonance and the playability of this wonderful ukulele. And I’m so glad I could pick it up in person today. Not only did I get to see where my new uke was made, but I got to shake the hand of the luthier who built it. That makes this ukulele so much more special to me. It was great getting to meet you Cary, and thanks so much for the tour of the shop. "
