    “I Need A Guitar-Sounding Ukulele”

    Why? More sustain! Huh? Okay. There are guitars for all that... All the best luthiers seem to have a Kamaka tenor in possession. That’s good enough for me :) Cheers, all:

    Nattys Huh

    I left the original strings on the uke and all hell broke loose. It was crazy. See for yourself, #bet. An HF-3 is more than I’ll ever need, I think. Happy to own two, ha. Hey, I love all. Since 2010. Got a lot of you mad beat:

    Chance Encounter

    Laughlin 3-K. It can be played on Kamaka HF-3s, but it ain’t the same. Pain translates better through certain scale lengths:

    Losing You

    Made this jawn up a bit back, when down and out. Funny to see now: much happier. It’s a treasure owning a Kamaka. I always get some with it, and it always helps:

    Eagles Fight Song

    We’re not as bad as everyone says. Promise. Please hope for us. We have a storied history, and nary a Super Bowl victory. I’m really pulling for Philadelphia. I can see the skyline from my front stoop at night and I just adore it. I don’t need it for me. I need it for my dad. And his buddies...

    “Sweet Sue, Just You”

    Saw this on Facebook by some bruh in Germsny. I don’t know how to link it. It’s way better than this crap here ;) Anyway, I never heard the song, but I had to rip the Laughlin outta hibernation. A bit rough, but great tune! — Matt

    Why Get a Custom When You Can...

    I have a Laughlin and a couple Kamakas. Can’t beat a pine-topped Fluke concert with plastic fretboard. I have a koa one, too, that’s less-used, so I know. Cheers to everyone I’ve ever dealt with here, it’s been a trip:u http://https://youtu.be/NX24NKXmUgo

    Only For You/ Kamaka Centennial HF-3

    I haven't been around much. I did this, though, and thought it turned out okay. F-bomb at the end, sadly. Couldn't control myself. Apologies. I've been listening to a lot of old recordings I've done and the Kamaka sound is pretty perfect. Other ukuleles lack the shimmer. Also, my email has been...

    WTB: Kiwaya KS-1

    Looking for the entry level Kiwaya KS-1. I need it fast, which is why I have to bypass my old standby- Hawaii Music Supply, this time- so if I don't get any shouts within the next day or two, I'll just go that route. I guess pm with condition and desired price or whatever if looking to sell...

    FS: Recent Blackbird Clara w/Misi Pick-up

    Selling this BB Clara I just got from scdano. He bought it from Mim in December. I traded it for a BB BTU tenor. It has a factory installed Misi pick-up. Comes with all original paperwork and Misi charger. Asking $950 flat shipped/insured to CONUS only. I don't know how to flip the pics, nor...

    The Doctor Is Real In

    I listed this Blackbird BTU tenor for a steal a while ago, but held onto it after I was able to sell one of my HF-3s, for next to nothing, too :( Anyway, it's wintery here outside Philadelphia again and I hate it! So, the Blackbird-- it's awesome in this weather. I don't really take anything but...

    Which Tenor Laminate for the Office?

    Alas, here's somewhere my Kamaka would never go: :cool:

    Laughlin 3K

    I don't always forget to take my signature off a post, but when I do, on nearly every occasion of said blunder, someone inboxes me about my Laughlin. It's a style 3 koa copy, in the twenties fashion, and it's pretty insane. Anyway, here's some sound... before I'm forced to sell it to some...

    Blackbird BTU CF Tenor (Recent)

    More pics that I'm sure will end up sideways :rolleyes: They are! I just checked. I give up.

    Blackbird BTU CF Tenor (Recent)

    Selling my Blackbird Carbon Fiber tenor I purchased from Hawaii Music Supply last year. Doesn't have much playing time, with the usual scratch marks on the face that are impossible to photograph. I'm asking $1,000, shipped and insured to CONUS only-- sorry. I can take more pics and send by...

    FS: Kamaka HF-3 (2015)

    Selling my Kamaka I purchased from Hawaii Music Supply last year. Doesn't have much playing time, with the usual scratch marks on the face that are impossible to photograph. I have a '16 model I'll keep in lieu of this one, too. This one is actually better due to the high gloss finish, though...

    Drunk and Loving My Fluke

    Anyone get their 100th anniversary Kamaka yet?

    Here's #158 on the right, beside its less-than-a-year-old(er) sibling. Irish twins :o I'm going to go ahead and assume the pic will be tilted. I've posted the same way since 2010, but for some reason the pic posting went askew at some point, never to return back to normal.

    WTB: Magic Fluke Co. Fluke/Flea Gigbags

    Hey, I have a Firefly sans gigbag, and I think I'm going to order another Fluke concert, so I was wondering if anyone has either- or both- bags available used. I don't care if they're the older style. Obviously I could purchase the newer TKL bags direct at $39.99 a piece, but I'm trying to save...

    Laughlin ukulele owners, please share your thought

    Tim Laughlin is the best kept secret in the ukulele world. I'm the owner of the other kite/bow tie 3K. It is without flaw. Just flip your computer over for a better look haha
