These new Rebel Livingston ukuleles are sure stunning to look at. I really would love to own one.

Do you own or have you played one of these ukes?

What specifically about them do you see that you think is inspired by Chuck Moore?

I don't see a direct connection. Please clarify and be as detailed as possible.

I had a long list ready to go in response to Booli, but felt the benefits not being worth it. I love the bevel, the birds in the fretboard, the headstock it all just says premium to me.

I do not understand.

Please tell me how is the benefit if joyful conversation about our favorite things with other folks that share a similar passion not worth it?

Have I ever said something to offend you? I do not recall us having a previous conversation here on UU.

Please explain. What have I done or said?

No, it seem like it could be a contentious topic that would imply Rebel was copying the MB, which isn't the case.

No, you have not offended me, I just didn't want it to appear that I was knocking Rebel. I believe some of the features may appear on MB's, but I have also seen them in other brands, so I shouldn't only reference MB.

I do not know why you are so timid.

However, I will leave it alone and wish for and hope for the best for you in all of your endeavors.

Good luck my brother. :)

Rebel makes fantastic ukes.
The suffer from "cheap/knockoff/"chinese" syndrome which I think is completely unfair.

They are quality craftsmen that do excellent work that results in a great sound.
I don't have a livingston, but I have an alchemist, and another mahogany, and they are great instruments.

Strange.. the link says its in stock, but it's not searchable either by rebel or livingston.

They have two of these, so if you want you can add two to your cart.

I was able to handle one of the spruce tops at the uke festival and was impressed. Couldn't really test for sound for as I remember Willie K. was playing.
Nice instrument. Was on my hit list at HMS as is the Livingston.
Gotta admit though that price is a bit steep for me as its in Kanile'a custom range.
