    My grandson Mickey likes to play at a uke when he comes to visit. He has a couple of instruments at home that he is allowed to play and he knows enough not to touch his dad's valuable instruments.

    It's a Johnson, but they're almost the same, (probably made in the same factory) so an understandable mistake. I got it second hand a few years back and it already had the strap pins on it. Since...
