That mandolele looks interesting
Thanks, but I'm not selling any of them, each will be raffled to my uke group of about 70 regular members with the poceeds going to The Ukulele Kids Club. In the past, the ukes I've raffled to my group gets from $500 to $700 each in raffle tickets, much more than if I sold them outright.I'm drooling a bit over those Bruce Wei Arts ukes you have there... I'll let you know if UAS gets the better of me...
How do we enter the raffle? I just came back from the theukc.org but I didn't see any mention of how to enter...(I deleted my original post inadvertently, sorry to all for the nice replies I received.)
I have nerve damage to my neck and shoulders from radiation treatments for cancer in 1973, which forces me to sit and slouch when I play ukulele. I'm finding that standard depth ukes are a problem, but the thinline Lanikai bocoté tenor I have is comfortable. So I decided to buy a couple more tenor cutaway thinline/travel ukes and put up my standard depth ukes for raffle to my uke group and donate the money to The Ukulele Kids Club, which we've been doing for the last 7 years in the amount of almost $8000. I'm keeping the Bocoté and Godin Multiuke and ordered a Kala Travel spruce with spalted maple (great deal for $170 shipped), and another Thinline Lanikai, flame maple (discount to $300 shipped).
