Thanks for sharing that link, it's a great read.

I've been trying to source a cavaquinho here in the US to use and play as a steel-string soprano uke, but all I find are on ebay and costing ~$200, and brand names for which I can find no info...reviews, etc...

Seems that I may have to source a music shop in Portugal that will ship to USA that sells 'beginner' level instruments, but I am not hopeful as of now...any thoughts?

If you can accept webshopping Thomann (https://www.thomannmusic.com/) might be an alternative. An advantage for you is that the prize is much more on "your side" then over here. Cheers!
