btw.. it looks like he stuffed the inside of his uke?? how much of a difference does it make to sound when being played as an electric (like he does in the video)?

It cuts out the feedback. There are threads on here somewhere.

I don't remember if it was posted or not and as deach mentioned, there was a thread about the "newspaper" in the sound hole. That particular footage was from the PBS special, "Hawaii: Songs of Aloha". It was filmed in August 2000 at the Hawai'i Theater in downtown Honolulu. The program featured a number of stellar performances by the Brothers Cazimero, Keola Beamer, Willie K., Amy Hanaiali'i-Gilliom, Na Leo Pilimehana, Ledward Ka'apana, Cyril Pahinui and the Kamehameha Schools Concert Glee Club as well as Jake and the Makaha Sons. I forget when it was aired on PBS.

Yep, I remember seeing this on PBS. Interesting how Jake used to play spruce top ukes but now prefers his koas.
