Three weeks ago I heard Iz's Rainbow/Wonderful World for the first time, the nextday I got my "first Uke".

I was looking at a pretty Mitchell Koa w/Pearl but it was alittle out of my price range, the sales guy showed me a Johnson (uk-120) way below what I was willing to spend (39.00$)and I couldn't beleive how much better the cheeper Uke sounded!!! I'd tell any newbie to check it out.
Took it home and was strummin the 3 chords that day and now my fingers hurt cuz I can't put the thing down!!!!!!
Taking lessons starting next week, figure it cant hurt.

Now I am shopping for a "better" Uke so I can turn this one in to my camping Uke. I got it bad, the girlfriend just don't understand.

Welcome Freedive135!

Yeah I got it bad too. I'm on my 3rd uke now and I already have my eye on a Lanikai Concert with pearl inserts and electric amp. My don't get either - everytime I buy a new uke I have to think of something creative to justify spending the money! :D
