In November 2018 I gave my friend Joe my custom made Boat Paddle ML Tenor ukulele. Its made of Beeswing Mahogany and plays and sounds great. Joe actually drove four hours with me from Kansas City to the St. Louis area to pick up the ukulele in 2013. Five years later it was sitting unplayed in the closet and I invited him to visit me in Seattle to pick it up. He was here two weeks later. I knew he would play that uke everyday and love it. My wife and daughter were mad at me for giving it away because they both wanted it eventually. However, neither even play ukulele so it absolutely went to the right person. I have given away four other ukes to friends but nothing as high-end as the Boat Paddle. If my daughter’s boyfriend lasts a couple of years he may get my Jazzmaster.
