    UU VIP billing

    If you have your VIP annual payment set up you will see it coming from “Azuos”. This seems to be UU’s new portal. If you are not a VIP member please consider being one. This is a great forum for a great instrument. Wishing a happiest new year to all

    Fanfret fingerboard?

    Not a uke question but a luthier question. I was checking out the eye candy at LMI’s Luthier Showcase and saw this fanfret. Is or a gimik or does it have any advantages? (Beau, we need more ukes there!)...

    All things must pass

    To quote George Harrison, a ukulele player, All things must pass. I fully understand the reason and if having higher levels of VIP could help I’m in. Much Mahalo to Rayan, all monitors past and present for having such a welcoming environment. Peace and Aloha. Jim

    Parade time again

    This time of year many small towns have their "insert name" Days where pretty much anyone can be in the parade. This year our bunch did a Django Reinhardt, a Led Zepplin, and a ZZ Top tune. As long as you through out candy, noone seems to care how good the music is!

    NUD - Camp Uke

    My darling wife got me a Camp Uke for Christmas. I believe it is “Lyon Healy Camp Uke” from what I could find. They were made in the 30’s & 40’s. It has the number 7240 on the neck block so is probably a later one. It came without tuners (I had a couple sets already), two cracks by...

    Chord flash cards

    New Uke / Birdhouse

    First off, I want this post as far from the Luthier section as possible. I bought a Hana Lima kit to get a feel for what goes into making a uke. I am more of the 2x4 and lag bolts type of woodworker but I thought it would be fun. At the worse I would get a clock or birdhouse out of it. So...
