    AMEN!! Koa is a beautiful Wood, it is just too HARD.

    I believe art belongs on a wall. Some people love blingy ukes and that is their personal preference. To each his own.
    I am a simple person and I think ukuleles that scream "look at me" have the...

    Well of course we aren't talking about a bad tone. I choose all sizes including soprano on tone, playability, and sustain. Without sustain it is just dead.

    For me there is no such thing as too much sustain. It is easy to lessen the sustain but next to impossible to increase sustain on a dead instrument.

    I only play low G and loved it on my Soprano Pineapple. It balances out the high treble and gives it a more pleasant sound. High G tuning is too diminished of a sound range for my ears.

    Spruce as a soundboard for sure. Koa for beauty only. But since I don't buy to look at them on the wall I am no longer interested in it except for furniture (which unfortunately I can't afford...

    Personally I like that they stick things that mean things to them on the ukuleles they make. Whether others of the same beliefs would tolerate a uke I'd make with the...

    Agreed. We don't even have to go that far, what about ANY disguised religious symbols. Jewish, Hindu, Islamic, etc. It really doesn't matter what the religion is. I respect all beliefs, but I don't...

    I don't really want any religious symbols on my musical instruments unless I choose to put them there myself. Which I don't. But I believe in tolerance for all religions and beliefs.

    One quality ukulele would work very well for me. I don't collect things. I am sort of a minimalist and not fond of having a lot of stuff. I tend to like simplicity.

    LOL, so now wanting to play/hear a musical instrument vs a souvenir is snobbery :)

    The answer why the ukulele is not considered a real instrument is because so many of them aren't. Ironic :)

    ....and yet toy ukuleles continue to flood the market. More so than any other stringed instrument. That is why the ukulele is not taken seriously. People play toy ukes more than they play toy...

    I'm sure I am going to pi$$ off a lot of you so I apologize in advance, BUT..tons of ukuleles that are being played ARE toys. I don't agree that a good player can make any junk uke sound good. I...

    I guess the bottom line for me is....I would not buy a signature model ukulele. No matter who's name is on it. It always comes off as gimmicky to me.
