View Full Version : Your Ukulele

I got some marks on my ukulele - not really marks but its like a coat of paint has come off or something...

Doesn't bother me at all though - didn't effect the sound so i don't really care...

I take my uke basically everywhere so i can't expect it to stay mint condition.

IF somebody has already made a thread about it lol - what marks do you have on your ukuleles?

A week or two after I got my Kamaka I had it sitting on a stand and I was rolling up a cable, I spun around with the cable and the jack hit my 'ukulele right under the bridge. It just left a little dimple, but now I'm a little bit more aware of where my 'ukulele is.

I carry my Uke in a vintage Russian gas mask bag, so only the head has a couple of marks.

However, since this is my first Uke, there are a lot of nail marks from me learning how to strum, and the paint has been polished by my arm along the lower edge.

These are the physical evidences of an intangible love.

I remeber when I first got home with my ukulele, I was leaning back in a swivel chair playing some chords. I got a little to into it and fell over backwards. I had to throw my uke from my body to avoid falling on it! Only a one minor dent on the side though!
