That is what it sang as it was carried out the door. That Kasha tenor made of the wildest, craziest piece of Cocobolo I have ever seen sang in its deep and mellow voice.
But it found a happy home, and here is its happy new owner, George W. who drove up from Puyallup to claim it.
Enjoy it George, I doubt I will ever find another piece of wood like that. George is a player and he will enjoy playing the Kasha and its Torrified soundboard into it's maturity.

It's a beauty, Brian! Thanks for all the care you put into making it. I'll take special care of it. It's amazing that you can make these beautiful instruments at such a reasonable price. Where else could I find a custom tenor for $100. Just amazing!

Welcome to the Griffin Uke Family George! I've owned 6 Griffins and have 3 remaining that'll never leave the family instrument vault.

Thanks Patrick (my middle name, by the way), this is my second Griffin masterpiece. I also have 'ol #64, a nice Pinecone. I, of course, was joshing the 'ol curmudgeon about the price. He's gonna try to get even on the next one--I just know it! Ya know, he did a kind of bait and switch on me. I wanted the Bocote one! But, I hardly consider this Cocobolo second fiddle! Oooo, was that some sort of a weird backhanded pun? Nevertheless, I've been a Griffin fan for three years now. If he keeps treating me right, I might remain so for another year!

Chad, don't listen to George, besides he is being deported to Mexico Wednesday morning. He will be out of our hair for a few weeks anyway. I hope he doesnt take that Cocobolo uke with him, The wood came from Mexico originally but they might not let him cross the border with it again.
