    Exploring 100 year old (your) ukes

    In another discussion, someone commented on how cool it would be if we posted pictures (and discussed, says I) our 100 year old ukes. Here is my 1920 Weymann enjoying being played around Colombia. It goes back to South America for a couple of months in about four weeks!

    Dislike of Moving Between Different Neck Scales

    The thread on people's preferred scaled has had me thinking: Am I alone in not enjoying going between different size/scale necks? Its not the length or number of frets for me, but the differences between the fret spacing. I seem to strongly prefer not moving between a soprano neck and a...
