Ran into Joe and Kristen Souza of Kanile'a 'Ukuleles, talking story with them I discover I went to school with his older Brother and sister from the 5th grade thru high school. He lived just a mile up river from my house. He is ten years younger than me so I didn't remember him too much but remember exactly which house he lived, and always gave his older siblings David & Roselani a wave as I paddled by their backyard as I fished. Very small world.

Was a blast listening to all the various performers jammin' including Uncle Kimo Hussey. LOLO forget uncle's name on the bass 'ukulele but he was awesome.

Was fortunate to run into Uncle Emil Bader. He had 4 beautiful 'ukuleles of his on display, and I believe he has all 4 up for sale while they last I believe $300 each.

I showed this thread to my husband and pointed out some of the more exotic woods and unusual designs. He was quick to say my uke was beautiful (meaning I don't need another). :D

Somehow, I think this is the one I'd most like to have. It just speaks to me. :)

It's a hand made in Hawai'i one of a kind Guava wood tenor, and it's on sale for only $300 including a gig bag. ;)
If you're interested I'll PM you Mr. Bader's contact info. :)

Not helping with my UAS though. :D

Wow some really beautiful ukuleles. I'm going to visit Mr. Bader next month. I want a Milo concert but after seeing those spalted Mango ukes I might have to change my mind again! I think the most difficult thing will be limiting myself to only one...
