There is an outfit on eBay now that looks to be cashing in on Andrew's success and reputation at HMS. I don't remember the seller id but it starts with "noname..." I have a standing search for Pono ukulele and when I got the email listing a Tenor I went to look at it. I happened to notice down in the description they claimed to be "Hawaii Music Supply" - but they were out of some place on the Mainland and their listings for Ponos were much higher than what Andrew and friends list them at.

The "Hawaii Music Supply" wasn't real prominent - more like they were hoping to show up in searches when people search for "Hawaii Music Supply"

Please don't reward this sort of behavior (besides which, you'll probably be screwing yourself if you do...)

Okay, back to your regularly scheduled forum...

Hey John, did you let Andrew know about this?

Yes, I sent him an email before I logged in here.

When I read the title, I thought that this was advice to homeless uke players to avoid being invited home by people who are not who they seem to be. Still sounds like good advice, anyway.
