We just got a shipment of these Camp ukes! Pretty cool :) Actually sounds a little better than the originals I've played :D

They look sweet (must fight of uas). Have you got the new Gretsch reso ukes? They look tempting too.

I was waiting on them. The design they had initially was the same as the first batch of Kala Reso ukes, and they broke strings left and right, so wanted to see if they were going to have that problem before we stock them.

Made a quick clip on my iPhone. A customer of ours agreed to play it real quick for our youtube.

Yeah I didn't think about that either when I ordered them! But it's not bad at all. We got 2 of them and the frets are actually really good on these little things!

We just got this in today, really surprised at the sound on the new Gretsch Guilele! And I love the big neck on it!

That is Lenn. He's getting really good! Only been playing for a couple years. Pretty much plays his uke over the guitar now! If you're ever in Rockford during any of the festivals we have in town, you'll probably see Lenn out busking.

That camp uke has a interesting shape to it. I'm more intrigued by the guilele though!

The Guilele is SUPER loud! I'm going to try to get a clip up tomorrow. I really hope we get our video/audio studio setup this year at our store, the iphone thing doesn't really cut it all the time :)

Some folks may like Terry Mead banjos as well.
In some ways similar to the camp ukes as they are all wood.
