    Tangi Koa Double Puka Tenor

    Okay friends, this is one you won't see everyday...especially on the mainland. I have a koa double puka Tangi tenor.

    ISO Fluke or Flea

    I'm looking for a tenor or the right concert Fluke or Flea. I have a soprano Mele I can trade, but I can buy as well. Plastic fret board is fine, but I would prefer one of the patterned tops (unless it's purple or hibiscus). I also have a flamed maple Bluegrass tenor I will consider trading...

    The Nerdiest Uke

    I am transforming one of those 'Heavy Metal Ukuleles' off the evil bays into... ...wait for it... A Klingon ukulele. Yes, a Klinguku. Why would someone do this you ask? Well, it is very simple. I married a nerd. He dresses up like a Klingon and goes to comic cons and what not. He has been...

    The Fishuku: some musings

    I wouldn't call this a review, but I figured this was the best place for it anyway. I don't want to call it a review because this is technically a second hand instrument, but it still had the Aquila tag dangling from the tuner so it's pretty close to new. I was recently gifted a Fishuku FZB1...

    Minty Style 2 LoPrinzi Soprano

    I have a minty mahogany style 2 LoPrinzi soprano I'm looking to sell. It's a wonderful instrument. Balanced, melow...it plays like a dream and sounds what I imagine butter would sound like. I'm selling it for 2 reasons: I can't get used to the neck. I like my necks to have a little more chunk...

    Ko'olau Alohi string life

    I really like Alohi strings. I have put them on a few of my ukes and have never been disappointed, and currently have most of my main players strung up with them. I put them on my soprano sometime in June after UWC. The instrument had nearly perfect intonation after the strings settled. I...

    Neck Blanks

    Hello luthiers! Where do you get your neck blanks from, or do you make them yourself? This may be a really dumb question, but can I just get a 2x2 from Home Depot and shape that?

    Where to Buy Tuners?

    I am looking for replacement open geared tuners with amber or koa buttons. I thought this would be a fairly easy task... I have searched the interwebs, and have found open geared tuners, but none with amber or koa buttons. Gotoh has amber buttons on their sealed tuners, but not the other? Does...

MOP inlays and tuner buttons. The saddle was sanded to make it a little easier to play. Sounds beautiful...

    eBay feedback question

    I peruse the evil bay pretty much every day. I don't buy everyday, but I look. Until recently I never really looked at the actual feedback left for a seller. I just looked at the score, and maybe read the feedback if their score was below my acceptable number (which varied depending on number...

    FT Kala U-Tar

    Looking to trade a like new Kala U-Tar for a tenor. I'm open to all brands, but I would prefer a solid top. Looking to string it up low G, so bonus points if it's already strung that way. There's nothing wrong with it, but a Martin parlor guitar landed in my lap around the same time I acquired...

    McNally Ukulele? What?

    When did McNally come out with this bad boy? Anyone play one? I thought the strum stick was a little difficult to hold, I imagine this little thing is even harder. I think the strum stick had an almost banjo like tone...I wonder if this sounds similar...? Craziness!
