A friend of mine makes ukes in St. Louis. He (Karl Markl) made a baritone a few years back. Recently, he heard that it was sold at a shop in Hawaii to someone from Paris (France). He'd like to keep up with his "baby" and locate the owner.
Do we have any ukers in Paris who might know about this bari?

He should put a GPS locater in the next one he builds! :D

Good suggestion! He said he wants to stay in touch. That way he could trace every move!:D

It would be cool to know the history of old instruments - who owned it, what did they do, what music they played, why they sold or lost the instrument. The Red Violin was a movie with that theme, but a ukulele would have quite a different story to tell, I bet!
