    FS: 1920s Martin S0 - Chap's moving to HI

    Only so many ukes I can carry over on the plane! Plus, I need cash to pay for this move! This is a straightforward Martin Style 0 from the 1920s. Light, and sounds lovely. But she ain't pretty, as there's strum wear on the finish, repaired-and-stable cracks on the front and back, and...

    FS: Mya Moe Master Grade Myrtle Super Soprano - Chap's moving to HI!

    So, I'm taking a job in Hawaii. I don't really have the money for the move, but I'm going to do it anyway, wouldn't you? :) In order to help pay my way, I'm having to give up my favoritest uke, my Mya-Moe super soprano. More, and better pics HERE. Uke is in like-new condition. It's...

    Moving to Honolulu! Ack!

    Well, as mentioned in another thread, I interviewed for a couple jobs with the State of Hawaii a few weeks ago. I wasn't really expecting much, but, last night I got a call. It's not official-official yet, but the one right in downtown Honolulu told me that once the background checks go...

    Weekend in Oahu....where to stay, what to do?

    I have lined up an interview with the state of Hawaii. I don't know if this is something I can manage or not, because the pay is, frankly, awful. I'm not even sure it's a workable amount of money. Can you survive on Oahu, working downtown, for 43k? Either way, I' might just take it as an...

    Crazy state of Hawaii

    I applied for a job working with the State, a programming job with a pay range from a bit less than I'm making now, to quite a bit more. They mailed me a notification that I met the qualifications and to call a certain number to schedule and interview. I was excited! Then the phone call. :P...

    Guitar teachers teaching uke... Good or Bad?

    When I lived in Chicago, I went to uke classes at the Old Town School, and the teacher played uke and drums, and that was it. I moved out to Washington (state!) and suffered some really annoying financial difficulties, but in the last couple months, I've recovered enough to start looking for...

    12-fret concert?

    For several reasons, I don't really like fretboards that extend over the top of the uke. But, I also like at least a concert-sized neck. Anyone know of options for this that would cost less than the Kiwaya KTC-1?

    Kamaka rescue!

    Okay, so waaaay back in August of last year, some kind soul here on UU pointed out this abused Kamaka Gold Label available on Etsy: Being a sucker for a sad face, I picked it up and shipped it off to Kamaka for repair (4-6 mos, they said. :P). Well, I just got it back, and check it out now...

    The word is getting around...

    I was at a local grocery store, and happened to be wearing my UU shirt. The checker noticed it, and the conversation went like this... Checker- "That's a great shirt!". Chap- "Thanks! The ukulele is my latest obsession". Checker- "You know, there are people who play *real* music on those...

    Replacement Tuners for Harold Teen uke?

    Picked one of these up, in fairly poor condition, via Ebay. Only had two tuners left on it. Any idea where I could pick up replacements that wouldn't require drilling on the headstock?
