    You can have my ukulele that I wrote Travel Back and Everything to lose (from my Travel Back EP) on. It's the first uke I ever purchased and for a long while I kept it in my car and would play it while I was in traffic. (Don't try that at home). Complete with Jenny Owen Youngs and Bess Rogers stickers. Yes, I put MY OWN sticker on my Uke. And if you want I will sign it too!
