    FS: Incredibly rare and beautiful Kiwaya KMT-K koa tenor

    Beautiful instrument, but isn't this closer to a 3K Martin? Doesn't a 5K Martin have abalone purfling on the front and back and fretboard inlays?

    John Kinnard Interview

    The Asheville, NC guitar builder's name is actually "Kinnaird" whereas the San Diego, CA uke builder is "Kinnard." I know this because I have a Kinnaird guitar. Even the Fretboard journal article misspells his name-- https://johnkinnairdguitars.com

    Picture Quality

    Prior to the recent forum upgrade, any attempt to post a high res picture was "dummied-down" to something under 100KB --The only way to post high res pictures was to link to a hosting site-- Now, with the new upgrade, we seem to be able to post pictures up to about 1.3MB directly to the forum--...

    SpaceX Inspiration4 Martin ukulele

    Seriously-- how difficult would it have been to learn a quick arrangement of Bowie's Space Oddity? He could have been an instant celebrity instead of propagating the notion that the uke is just an annoying toy-- Just one man's opinion--

    SpaceX Inspiration4 Martin ukulele

    WOW-- I don't mean to appear harsh, but--what a wasted opportunity-- Traveling into space with a custom one-off Martin to be auctioned for charity with a worldwide audience- maybe he could have at least learned/played/rehearsed a recognizable, relevant tune rather than poorly strumming a couple...

    Ukulele Porn (post your uke pics here...)

    I have played at least 8 recent Kimo tenors and, honestly I would be happy with any of them--I think his builds are really consistent -- at least his spruce-topped ukes (I've only played one non-spruce-topped Kimo and it was redwood and probably sonically my favorite.) This is my first...

    TROUBLE DOWNLOADING A PHOTO:

    I've been able to upload photos up to about 1.2 MB-- With higher resolution photos I get the same message. Still way better than the old format which "dumbed down" all photos to a tiny size-- Also, in addition to the "Attach files" button, there is an "Insert image" icon on the toolbar above the...

    Posting Pictures-- WOW, what a difference!

    I love this forum-- however I've often been frustrated with the small, low resolution pictures allowed by the old forum format. That has changed dramatically! Ukulele Porn is MUCH more fun with large, higher resolution pictures! Thanks so much to those responsible -- I'm happy to join the VIP...
