    Hate to, but no choice: Kanilea K1 Tenor w/Uke Crazy Case, humidifier, strings - $875

    This has been sold to kvehe! I'd just like to thank everyone again for their generosity and their kindness in offering to help with donations. Kanaka had a thread up about a week ago talking about the definition of aloha spirit. Well, I think we all have that now. mahalo nui loa, everyone...

    Hate to, but no choice: Kanilea K1 Tenor w/Uke Crazy Case, humidifier, strings - $875

    Big mahaloz to everyone for your nice words for my little girl. On the plus side, it's just cataract surgery, so it isn't complicated or anything like that (she already went through her scare-us-to-death event about two years ago with a five pound tumor attached to her spleen. Just a benign...

    Hate to, but no choice: Kanilea K1 Tenor w/Uke Crazy Case, humidifier, strings - $875

    This is really hard, but my dog needs eye surgery and I need money, so I have no choice but to put up my Kanile'a K1 for sale. It's actually a bit of a no-brainer, actually. She's more important than the uke. I figured I'd start here because I know it would find a good home. No need to give...

    GUITAR INTEREST CHECK - Tacoma DM9 All Solid Mahogany

    Okay, I know this will seem very fickle of me, but I think I may want to release the Tacoma DM9 I recently acquired. The reason is pretty simple, the dreadnaught body is just too big for my comfort. I've tried and tried, but it just doesn't seem to fit. So, I'm thinking I'd like to step to...

    Kamaka Soprano on Goodwill

    I am not the seller! However, I know how we all cherish finding one of those garage sale gems, so I thought I'd let you all know that there is apparently a Kamaka for sale at the Shop Goodwill site. Who knows ... maybe this is a chance to grab a vintage uke for a great deal? Again, I am not...

    Strat vs Les Paul?

    Okay, here's a question for all you electric axe guys out there: as a still n00b on the six string, would the Strat or LP be the better choice for an electic, with a focus mainly on blues/bluesy rock/rockabilly? I know the God Clapton is a Strat guy, but then again my boy Billy Zoom is an LP...

    Euro 2012??

    With all the UK members on this board I would have expected some sort of posting on Euro2012 by now. Seems to me that getting the draw against France in the opening game was a good get for the England side that was minus Rooney. Still, they need to improve their overall play if they want to...

    Anyone in the market for a Kiwaya soprano?

    I'm not the seller, but I just ran in to this listing: http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions/Kiwaya-Soprano-Ukulele-wCase-10100564.html They also have a Mainland pineapple, though the price of that one is (as of now) already over $150. Goodwill. Who knew?

    Flea clone for 33 bucks ?

    Um, sure. Piracy is one thing, but continuing along this extreme level will lead to this sort of silliness: Some of you are likely too young to recall the music industry's first attempt at limitations.

    Pretty much Totally OT: Mr. Trololo dies

    The geeks out there who get off on Internet memes like me (remember Mahir of "I kiss you!" fame, Numa-Numa guy, Angry German Kid, or the Techno Viking?) will be sad to know that Mr. Trololo died yesterday. Happily, he continues to live on in Web Lore...

    Dog owners

    At the risk of opening up a can of worms, I've been following that guideline for the last five years or so. To put it bluntly, I don't trust Chinese manufacturers. It's not the workers I distrust at all -- I mean, Chinese laborers or workers are no different than any other -- but it seem that...

    Tacoma Dread

    I find myself in a position where I am being offered a Tacoma dread for practically nothing (inside sale from a guy at work), and just want the standard ego stroke and validation before I hand over the cash. This seems to be one of those "under-the-radar" makers, but for a 100% all-solid wood...
