    Default The suspense is killing me.

    April 2014, I bought my first ukulele, a Makala concert. April 2015, I bought an upgrade, a Mainland concert. Next weekend I am going to GMUG in Minneapolis, and I am hoping to find a new soprano ukulele. I've been planning this since June. I've been saving up. I have cash, and plenty of it. If I don't buy one there, I'm buying one on line the Monday after. Dang, this is like Christmas when I was just a kid.

    That's what it's like waiting for your next uke to arrive - a well know feature of UAS.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.
    Formerly known as uke1950.

    Don't do anything rash, UAS can be a very tricky condition
    All the best,

    Rollie, at least since you've been a good boy, and saved up your (uke) allowance, you should be guilt-free while following the muse down the Yellow-Brick Road of UAS now...

    I am looking forward to your NUD post, and anyone that reads this thread will be sharing your anticipation.

    Have fun at GMUG! You've excercised way more restraint than some of us... more than 3 years and only two ukes? You deserve a pretty little uke to take home with you!

    We have talked about your upcoming soprano for a while. I am almost as excited as you are. My dad use to say the planning and the anticipation of a fishing trip was as much fun as the fishing. Same goes with ukuleles.
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    I’m just curious as to what brand you’ll look at! I’ll get to see it at GMUG!
    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    Have you participated in the thread, "How the Ukulele Found You?" If not, please consider adding your story--they are just fun to read.

    I'll just have to see what they have there. I remember last year there was a good selection. I'm not really stuck on any one ukulele, so if something talks to me, I'll take it home. If I don't get one there though, I've had my eye on an Ohana SK-70MG. But I would like to try one out before I buy it.

    Good luck with your choice!

    I'm also impressed that the Minnesota bluegrass community also supports ukers.
