    Stringed instruments without amplification really don't do so well in the great outdoors. We need the acoustics of a room. Which brings up a different subject, which I think I'll post on now. ...

    That looks pretty bad overall. And, the messed up serial number is just unacceptable. What puzzles me is why anyone would bother to mess around with a Kala. They are pretty ubiquitous Ukes.

    I think some part of UAS comes from the intimate way in which players cradle their Ukes. You can actually hug your Uke, while laying your hands on its curves. In many ways it's a more personal...
