New uke!!! (pics!!!!)

I understand the excitement of a new uke especially if it's your first decent uke. I understand wanting to show everyone your new baby. But seriously, how many more pics of Mainland ukes can there possibly be? Don't get me wrong, I love the Mainland uke, the company, the owners etc but if you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all. And FU Mr. OohYouGotAMainlandPleaseShowUsPics guy.

I enjoy seeing new pics of Mainlands mostly because the ones on the Mainland site are so poor.

Why don't you go down to your dungeon, take one of its case and look at it?

I don't have a boat uke, tenor mango or slotted headstock.

..And the prisoners keep shouting at me.

Well look at it this way... It keeps them from asking for alternatives to the E chord, and what stringz to use. And it does end the related an no less annoying "waiting for a new uke" thread

At least for a little while.

I share your hate, Deach. Especially when people are trying to tell you that Mainland ukeses are soooo special. They are EXACTLY like Bushman ukeses (only difference could be the setup) and Ohanas are pretty similar to them, too. They are good quality Chinese ukeses sold in Nashville, Indiana. Period.

i like it when the photo is straight from the 8mp camera, blurry as fuck, and posted as a nice web friendly 3200x2400 resolution. really brings out the wood grain.

I really like the "pics-or-it-didn't-happen" guy. I had a festering boil on my ass once....I assume you'll take my word for it.

I understand wanting to show someone... but don't these people have any real human contact? Don't they at least have neighbors they could show it to?

I think UU should make two permanent threads- one called "I got a new uke" & one called "What kind of uke should I get?" & be done with it. Post all your nonsense there, & stop making new threads.

And a what kind of strings thread. Actually, I wish there was an old timers section of UU where we could hang out and discuss meaningful stuff, with out the interlopers...oh wait, I think I found that section ... :-)
