    I grew up in the country hunting and fishing. The first time my dad took me squirrel hunting we shot three of them and when he skinned them out they looked just like rats. I couldn't eat it. Sixty...

    I got an email today from GC informing me of all their black Friday deals. It looks like they expect to keep going past Christmas. I don't think they are going anywhere. I expect a change in...

    The great thing is that I am very lax about maintenance so there will never be a problem with overdoing something.

    I've always used plain old mineral oil on fretboards. Back in February a friend seemed so offended by the practice that he gave me a bottle of Dunlop fret oil. I've been using that and a little bit...

    I always thought the arched top of the case was to accommodate the bridge and the strings so that the top could fit tightly over the body but not squish them down.

    Yes, DGBE would be easier and if that is what you want, it is only logical. I don't know why ukuleles are tuned reentrant, but they are and to me that is what makes them interesting and challenging....

    Nothing wrong with that. My friend buys rugged things and anything that isn't he ruggedizes. I'm talking everything from how he dresses to what he drives. He has a Jeep, the vehicle not the cartoon...

    It is always a case of semantics, but to me finger picking is a pattern played over chords and plucking notes is melody. Pickin' and a grinnin' is much more than plucking out a melody.

    Contextually we are talking the vehicle here, not the cartoon character. Just for clarification purposes.

    I have a pickup in most all of my ukes. They are not hard to have installed and I've installed them myself. I don't buy an instrument anymore without one. If you aren't using them you aren't using...

    I have no doubt that there is someone out there sky diving with their uke. I mean you want to make a point, there is someone out there if you look long and hard enough that you can point a finger at...

    I have a nicely padded Fusion gig bag similar in construction. It won't hold a ukulele in a hard case though, just the uke and some accessories. But I do like the back pack style straps. Great for...

    I always just say reentrant and assume that unless someone is off immersed in some weird reentrant tuning world they know what I'm talking about.

    Actually there is no willpower involved. It isn't like I'm not buying ukuleles to somehow nobly deprive myself. If I wanted another one I would certainly buy it.

    I don't believe they are. I'm pretty sure that the parts all come in from Asia, including the bodies and Mike assembles them by putting on the tuners, the strings, etc at the shop in the states. Same...

    If the pickup isn't the problem, the Kustom PA50 is a pretty good acoustic amp at right around a hundred bucks. It is worth looking at. I really like the Fishman Loudboxes, but they are pricey.
