That's a cardboard uke? Wow. I didn't expect that at all. The tone is gorgeous. First time I've heard that song too. Bitter sweet and beautiful.

Thanks Unc. I'm not sure about a soundpost in yours, usually I do that if the top seems to need some help.

Sweet song Jim~that uke sounds really good ~~~ Meowwwww^^
