Danny Ferrington Uke

Our friend, Danny Ferrington, is a premiere Luthier (guitar maker)! We met him a few years ago. My husband, Guy plays guitar. He bought some  copies of a book Danny published. It's full of pictures of guitars Danny has made for various entertainers. The book is called: "Classic Ferrington Guitars", published by Callaway.
There is an introduction by Linda Ronstadt, friend of Danny, and "Ferrington" guitar owner.
Well, to make a long story short, Guy always wanted an instrument made by Danny, so  I scrimped and saved to get him a handmade one of a kind uke, made from a gourd (we got to pick it out ).  My husband was so excited, he had the uke named after me, Lulu, (my nickname). It's an honor to have  a fabulous piece of art named after me.  Danny is now selling these ukes in the Christmas Catalogue of Neiman Marcus. You can see him online, by googling Danny Ferrington/ Neiman Marcus. Also, he will be on the Today Show this coming  Tuesday, Oct. 19th 2010. We are excited for Danny, and hope he is successful  in his new venture!

    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider
    worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  10. Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
