I really liked the interview, but tip #9.
"9. Only buy another ukulele if you actually need one. "
I don't believe his boss (Louis) or dealers would agree.
Maybe we a definition of "need" is required. :)

That was a nice article. Thanks for the link.
He has been nice to me, and I am happy with my Living Water strings.

Charming! Great interview - I feel like I have a better idea of who he is, and he seems like a wonderful guy. I certainly admire his videos.

A splendid fellow who gave me a lot of impartial advice. We had a long conversation via the electric telephone during the course of which, I learnt a lot about differing woods and ukulele construction.

Interesting interview. Some good tips, I am pleased he doesn't chunk. It's something I've never felt the need for, but so many seem to do it, I sometimes wondered.

I have always found an excuse - er "need" for each new uke I bought.
