I've had a Uke since I was 6 years old. It was one my grandmother got me in the early 60's. Over the years Ive build quit a collection of Ukes but this one in my favorite. Its a soprano and I have a long neck concert from Kanile'a These are the best ones in my collection as far as sound and quality. Love playing to soprano the best though of all of them

On the other side of the mandolins, is that a multi string Bass?

Take care,

Here are those images, nohandles. It takes some finagling to post pictures from Flickr.

[QUOTE=thomas;245204]On the other side of the mandolins, is that a multi string Bass?

Yes I have a 15 string electric bass guitar that my son gave me- Lot of work but really fun. He is a classical guitarist and composes his own compositions.
He couldn't get what he wanted from my 4 string basses so he got this one for the piece he wrote. Once he did what he wanted old dad got the hand me down. I've been having a ball learning to command this beast.

Thank you for your help with the pictures and letting me know what to do. I like this forum and want to be a regular contributor once I get our lives back in order.

My favorite uke? No question it's my Crosby Archtop Tenor.
http://www.geocities.com/nigeldeon/uke/case3a.jpg
It was made just for me and it's the only one in the world. It has it's own display case, but it's rarely in it. It's my main go-to uke.

Yes it is mine and me with it. What a beast to hold up I think it weighs 15lbs and most of that is in the neck. Hope I can learn it play it like my son some day.

LOL! To be honest, I didn't expect to like the concert more than the tenor, but that's the way it shaked out so far. I guess my hands got too used to the shorter scale and got lazy to stretch out for the tenor. I guess I should represent the tenor too:
