    The pineapple Sunday I reviewed was maple and spruce (both known for highs) and the first thing I thought was also banjo, which has good and bad points. I like the sudden decay and way it would cut...

    I’ll definitely back it again. I was sorely tempted to do the concert reward, but we’re in the process of buying a house and my wife would skin me alive for such fiscal irresponsibility.

    When I was a kid and able to spend hours guilt-free riffing away on guitar, I did. I had a lot of fun doing it, too. I wouldn't say I was practicing so much, though - more like I was just playing...

    They're my favorite kind of guitars and they're significantly more versatile than a lot of people give them credit for.

    Depends on the specific guitar. Gretsch has been using center blocks recently and those don't exactly make for light guitars.

    Also, I've never lost picks in f-holes. They're too small and far...

    Sure. I only mentioned Hawaiian ukes because that’s what most of my experience is in.

    I like them. The strings are a little tighter and my playing is generally faster because of it, but the tone isn’t as deep. I’m especially a fan of KoAloha’s supers.

    A slotted headstock will likely bump you out of the Hawaiian market. Cutaways not as much, but they do raise the price.

    I'm thinking Martin. It's got a stronger name with guitarists who are already used to spending crazy amounts on collectible instruments anyway.

    I think they're good for a uke that you don't have to worry about and just strum along on camping trips or the like, but I'd never go to it for the tone. Or the playability.

    That's a budget that opens up a lot of possibilities. I'd watch The Ukulele Site for a while and wait for something to really strike your fancy, maybe in the Hawaiian section of the site.

    I will say that while I really like Kala's imports, I have yet to play an Elite that impressed me to the same extent as other American makers in that price range.

    Jazz is what really grabbed me about the ukulele, too. There’s something awesome about the chords’ tones when played on a small instrument that makes me happy.

    My first ukulele was a MG-C and I've loaned it out to four people, all of whom picked up the uke themselves. I also have an ASOV-T (what a great ukulele!) and my son has a KA-S. I think they offer...

    I found an Islander ASARM-T and it is a FANTASTIC ukulele. I think they started around $600 but were discontinued. Last I checked at The Ukulele Site, they had a couple in the warehouse and were...

    I used a book called First Jazz Standards that's for the guitar and, honestly it's been working pretty well. You just use the TAB for the top 4 strings and it usually works out pretty well.

    My preference for the Freemont low G is solely becomes it isn't as boomy as other low G strings I've come across. A lot of the ones I had tried would drown out the higher strings.

    I'm in the same boat, but I'd love just about all the songs from Animal Crossing - most of all the overworld theme from the GameCube game.
