    Today's Chuckle

    A guy in a restaurant stops a pretty waitress as she passes by his table. "Excuse me, Miss. Can I ask you a question about the menu, please?" She threw a drink in his face. "The men I please are none of your damn business!"

    Thoughts on Fender Fullerton Ukuleles

    Hello all, I’ve been noticing a number of players with the Fender Fullerton acoustic-electric ukuleles. In Canada they sell for around $280 , which is fairly inexpensive. Any thoughts on these ukes, they come in strat, tele, and jazz master forms and are concert in scale.
