    Uke ID

    Looks like a 50's-60's Harmony Deluxe without the label on the head stock. https://www.fleamarketmusic.com/images/yak/9411harmony1.jpg This one seems to be missing the piece of fret board glued to the top. Thought something was odd.

    Seasonistas general thread: yakking, joshing, news and pictures

    Torchwood was an awesome series, well the first series was best. They lost quite a bit of flavor and were toned down as they moved up the dial to more prestigious (family friendly) channels. They did hint that Captain Jack is the Face of Boe. Being in the U.S. I was only able to catch old DR...

    cracks in old ukes

    I have a little 1920's-30's Harmony that is a survivor bought from a kind soul who saved her from the junk pile. While its not a K brand or a Martin it is a very old very light uke made from old mahogany and has a heck of a bark Ive not experienced in a newer instrument. She is a special girl...

    So... I suck at Fortnite's Battle Royal? How about you?

    I'm currently playing on a super-wide monitor at 2560 X 1080. Fortnite's Battle Royal is all the rage today... do you play? I simply have been trying to not die... so far no good, but its fun. Nothing like sneaking around hoping no one sees you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6sQ7-bgwdY...

    cleaning tips, esp fret and finish?

    Bought a bass with rusty frets a long time ago and was taught by an old guitar tech to simply use an ink eraser on them. Worked like a charm. Use the grey or ink side Sounds like the lacquer finish has become crazed. As explained this can happen due to temperature changes as well as the...

    The Non Standard Uke Thread

    Then there is this right here. A little 20's soprano banjolele still wearing her wooden friction pegs and what appears to be the original skin. She is a tiny thing and loud as all heck. stuffing a sock in it does little to quiet this beast. I stole this flapper girl from the internet and...

    Second uke with a very different flavor?

    I think I payed around $200 usd for my 20's banjolele. I haven't seen many of the same style but a few. Mine is in the best condition still wearing wooden friction tuners. Its tiny, very loud and has that hillbilly sound. It popped up in the marketplace so I grabbed it once I saw it. I suggest...
