    Cigar-box help?

    Sure can! I am pretty sure it can be repaired, but I don't have the tools...or the money to pay a good luthier. It's a pretty uke, cost about $190. It's a laminate, but I still loved it. My plan was to turn into a CBU and get a cordoba tenor to replace it...but if it could be repaired...

    Salutations!

    Hello, lovelies. I have been lurking here for a bit (even joined a contest, oh my) and hope to eventually get to meet more of you brilliant, fantastic musicians and ukerists. I stumbled upon this place once I'd gotten my first uke (cheapie mahalo, whee!). Getting a uke was rather impulsive...
