The postman brought me a nice big package today. It's the William King long scale tenor! Man it's so exciting to receive a masterpiece custom ukulele, even my dog wants a piece of it.

Anyway, this is a little documentation of the arrival of the custom 'ukulele. I will following up in the upcoming weeks with my impression of it.

The Ameritage case coming out of the package:
