BUT!! I have actually started to get a lot more money form my work.. not a lot more, but for me, it's a lot. So! I have noticed I don't pick the ukulele up much more, WHY YOU ASK?? (in a "wanting to know" voice)

I'm sick of my ukulele, it would be.. talking to the same person, only that 1 person for 2 years. It gets old!

anyways .. toss up is!! + might be getting a kpk.. but other than that

I know they are expensive, but I needa fill this void!! and i want them to be with pickup, but neither of them are, and I can't find them with a pickup

i know it comes down to what u think is good for you, but your thoughts are?!?!?!?!?!

dude, contact Gaby at musiccitycairns she sold me my kanile'a im just waiting on a case from pono/koolau but her prices are very good, plus the added advantage of buying in australia, she can get the kamakas, koalohas, kanilea's and ponos and the prices are around the same as everyone elses in the states BTW if it was me go the spruce top, just seem to sound alot nicer,

Depends who the person is, and how we complement each other.

I have a crappy uke, and I love it, 'cause I don't worry about it when I pass it around.

I was playin both last night. both had Aquilla's.

Mahogany has the standard Mahogany warmth to the sound.
Spruce top has a very bright sound.

Hard to choose between the 2. Kinda like apples and oranges.

I'm glad my local shop has lost of different Uke's to choose from and lets you play them.... Helps me keep some money in my pocket:D

gosh well isnt this just a time waisting thread ;) haha always exciting when your looking for a new uke, i think i was planning 3 months before i had the money.. Problem is your gonna keep looking around and something else will come up. I know this, ive seen this, ive done this, you dont want this :rolleyes:
