    Total Immersion Hobbies before Discovering Ukulele

    eBay and Reverb has good vintage baritones, if you can look over the pictures. I have a Bobby Henshaw Vega built solid mahogany and a laminate top and back Tempo.

    If You Had it to Do All Over Again, What Would be Your Starter Uke? And Why?
