    You'll see my UBASS, Makala Waterman, Luna Hightide Concert size, my Makala Pineapple, the Makala Shark which started it all, my Bohemian Guitars Surf Wax electric, and my sort of identified vintage Super Tenor. The vintage one is tuned GCEA but is 29" so I've just classified it as a big tenor. As for manufacturing information best I can figure it's from about the 1950s and is either a Telleno or Bobby Henshaw Uke. It matches images of Telleno ukes perfectly, but on the headstock there is the shadow of a sticker or brand that was once on it and the shape of that shadow matches perfectly to the Bobby Henshaw shape and placement. So I am leaning towards it being that.
    You've amassed quite a collection. Which one is your fave?
    Thanks for the pic!

    Oh man, that's hard to say, it's like choosing a favorite child. The Makala Shark was my first one so it holds a place in my heart, I like the versatility of the Surf Wax as it allows me to utilize more of my effects pedals, but my go to for practice or performance is the Luna Hightide.

    Updated family photo. My little herd of ukuleles has changed quite a bit from my last family photo, so here's an update. Each has it's own unique size, shape, sound, and personality.

    My pride and joy is a Solid Mahogany Tiny Tenor from Pepe Romero/Daniel Ho. I named it "Lumière"
    I also have a Kala Soprano KA-ASOV-S Spruce and Ovangkol which I named "Blood, Sweat, & Tears"
    And another soprano by Kanilea. The Islander AS-4 Acacia that I call "Little Bear"

    Picked this up at an Estate sale today. Has Le Domino on the headstock and the dominos around the sound hole but they aren’t inlaid which I now see all Le Dominos were decals. Made of Maple with gold painted fret markers, not the dominos.
    It’s got a few dings but it’s in pretty good shape. It had a sale ticket from 1950 for $10 still in the case which is a Geib Econo, so that was after 1937. And a learn to play book. The strings wont stay tuned, but the tuners look in good shape. Comments please! What should I do with this? I'm headed to Austin next week so I'll take it by local luthier.

    These ukes were featured in an article of the current "Ukulele Magazine".

    I read an article on those Domino ukes in Ukulele magazine recently. They looked really cool!
