    ::Leader Board:: Ahnko Honu Takes The Lead Chapter 16!

    Hey look at this cute little guy. Baby seagull - he fell of my roof and has been stuck in my garden for a couple of days. Tried to get him back on the roof but he freaks out as do his parents so he's off to a sanctuary today. I'll kind of miss him to be honest. :)

    Luna Banjolele - opinions?

    I just tried one of these in the local guitar shop (GAK) and was quite impressed. It had a snappy retro sound and made my Formby stylings sound much more authentic. Any idea how it weighs up against other modern banjoleles? I have a firefly but personally don't love it. This felt much more 'me'...

    Any idea what this is? (uke ID)

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200932935663?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 I was thinking about bidding on this but it went a little rich for me in the end for a blind punt. Looked sort of interesting though. Have I missed out on a bargain or dodged a bullet?
