I've found some real gems on Ebay. Those old Japanese ones are fun. That Harmony has such a great, unique sound. It's fun to experiment like that, but, it does take some funds to get them.

You never know what you're going to get on Ebay though. The neck has separated from the body on about 3 of them. But I simply glued it back with Elmer's Wood Glue and let it set and they've all been fine since.

I'm thinking about doing a tutorial video on how to buy old ukes on Ebay. Do you think that would be worth doing?
