Secret Vault Series


" I love my mya-moe six string tenor, it has a great jingle jangle chorus affect and I love the way it sounds picked... And the minor chords on it are lovely. It is made absolutely beautifully the quality is brilliant, and Cary has excellent customer service. Came with a luxury case and stays in tune really well! Very happy with this amazing and beautiful ukulele. Thank you Cary! "
