I'll get a picture up tonmorrow but seriously most people on here(I'm one of them) treat their ukes better than my parents treated me. If they get a scratch on it they're sending it back for warrenty:).

My Favilla, with closeup of the glued neck and cracks. Doesn't show the toothpick currently replacing part of the saddle. Her name is "Buster".

My "no name" soprano from eBay. Looks to be from 50's or 60's. The action is high and she is loud!

Thanks! She's actually very playable and loud. I bought her to make a "Favilla cigar box". :eek: Couldn't do it. She's relieved. :D

i got this deached to me at the UWC. someone played the crap out of it. it's missing one of those bolts that hold the drum head on, but they may have replaced it with a bent piece of metal because its right where your arm would rest and a bolt could be uncomfortable. I'm playing it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-jcw4dzXxw
