    They're made in Indonesia now rather than Southeast Asia (Vietnam)? Breaking in new workers must take a lot of training and time!

    For us townies, the drive out to Haleiwa after work is a two hour ordeal in rush hour traffic. Tourists can leave earlier in the day and enjoy the journey.

    Sounds like a good deal. Most ask for 30% consignment. 15% is well worth it to avoid dealing with all the hassle and time involved with selling an instrument.

    I just drove by this last weekend and the sign was still up but it seems to be off their website (as well as some of the workers from that location). If it's gone I'm sad. It's just a 15 minute walk...

    Thanks! Yes, it is almost impossible to get other musicians to play my pieces. But these students choose my piece for the project so I was happy I got to hear someone play besides me!

    When seated, I can easily hold the instrument at such an angle so as not to be flush against my belly. Standing is more challenging since I can't support the instrument with my leg and thus tend to...

    Yes, the long sustain and ringing overtones are Romero Creations traits. Not everybody likes the extra resonance—some prefer the percussive fast decay of traditional ukuleles—but as a guitar player I...
