    Those A&Ls are very nice... but not easily available here in the UK - the cheapest I've seen one is near £300 with shipping ($500!), which is enough for two Jim Dandys and a case! I was looking at...

    Gretsch Jim Dandy for beginner?

    I've recently fitted a strap to my tenor uke, then fitted two wound strings (low G), then bought a thumb pick and a few Alaska Piks (I've gone so far into the dark side I can't see no more).
