Here are some pics of my new/old 1930s Vega Banjo Uke. It is an incredible instrument and I am having a great time playing all my ukulele tunes on it. It is a very rare instrument, in that they didn't make very many of them. It is in excellent condition with all original hardware and a skin head. It is a pleasure to play this wonderful instrument! If it could only talk and tell me where it's been since the 1930s.

Ah man I'm confused.

I would be glad to post a sound sample or video, but I don't know how to do that on this site, without going through YouTube.
What I have done is not YouTube ready.

Heh, heh. I can relate, except I've passed that age where I don't much care what people think of me. :)

However, you do know that you can put a video on YouTube and mark it so it will only show up for people who have the link, right? There are three ways you can mark videos at YouTube - when marked "public" your youtube will show up in searches and anyone can see it. When marked "private" only those YouTube users that you share the video with can view it. In between is a mode I think they call "Unlisted" - anyway, in that mode the uke only shows up for people who have the URL to it. So, you can set the video that way and then post the video or the URL (or both) here at UU and only people who visit UU will be able to view the video.

That is so great! Santa really treated you right! I have been doing a lot of banjo uke shopping/browsing the last few days. Congratulations!






Btw the video was set to private, and wouldn't work.

Thank You! I fixed the video and it should be visible now.
