    Thanks. Yes, I have your S/N from your previous post. You probably know that they don't make the tenor Flea anymore. You have something unusual.

    It seems that the generic description of each level is the same, "The Ukulele has never been more popular, and Fred Sokolow's relaxed, user-friendly teaching style makes it easy to learn." Etc. Then...

    I found it on our eBay for $18, but it mentions telling how to tune the uke. I don't want something that basic. After you use it for a while, let us know what you think. I don't see detailed...

    Fred is a wonder on the strings, and he's a good teacher. I saw him at one uke fest. As for his DVD lessons, I'm sure you'd learn something. How much you're willing to spend and how much time...

    I'm guessing that's a typo. Google doesn't know anything about acai wood, but it knows the acai berry. It should probably read "acacia," which is the family in which you find koa. If it's koa,...

    Many instructors (Gerald Ross, for example) recommend using straps, if only to make it easier to strum and fret. If you search for attractive-looking buttons, they can add to the appearance. I'm...

    Yes, start 'em young! The next time around, I'm going to start playing the uke when I five years old.

    What a shame. I once left a Kamaka in a library after a jam, but I turned around and went back for it. I hadn't even gotten to my car. I can understand how a uke could be left behind on a plane. ...

    I have several banjo ukes, and each has a different sound, but I like them all. It will be difficult to get the exact sound you want. I recommend contacting Aaron Keim at Beansprout ukes. I'm sure...

    The basic, easy chords are C, F Am, G7, and G. Those chords will...

    Friction tuners are awful, but they would never keep me from buying a uke. Yesterday, I brought two Martins to a jam - a soprano and a concert. Tuning the concert with its geared tuners was a...

    Yes, that was a good show - a legitimate gun for hire. I remember his business card, "Wire Paladin, San Francisco." I wondered if he traveled throughout the wild west leaving his cards at saloons. ...

    Well that's interesting. It's a newer Flea with an integrated saddle. I wonder if only Flukes got separate saddles.
