So here it is....a brand new Soprano Applause, well not brand new - I did play it for an hour or so - and it can be yours. There is a slight buzz when you rock it out though....maybe it's just my style of playing... but when you act civil with it, it sounds pretty nice.

Yeah it sounds pretty good. I wasn't planning on plugging it in much, just taking it with me places instead of a more expensive ukulele.
Just wondering, have you had any problems with scratches on the back?

its not my uke. but its an applause. so the back is plastic. and its got a rough texture to it. almost like a fluke. scratches on the back are the last thing i would worry about on this uke.

06-11-2008, 10:54 PM
Well, I saved the other pics that you had up, and examined those really closely. And what I came out with was a minimum number...and therefore, my educated guess is:

851.

And that includes an orange hair clip and a yellow rubber band. :)

I've played that Applause Uke (but with the pickup) and it sounds really great for such a cool design. I hope I win it! :)

BTW, Deach, you're the man.

Ah yes, that experience is similar to the moment that I realized what going into accounting really entailed. That would have been a big mistake, when what I really wanted to do was finance. BIIGG difference.
