    Totally agree. They have quite a unique tone, and the looks are always good. As mentioned, this one isn't quite up there with only the back having the sapwood but I think the bookmatching is done...

  3. FS: Cocobolo Ukuleles Long Neck Soprano #89 (EU/Europe)

    I'm selling my long neck cocobolo soprano for the simple reason that I'm about to receive a new uke from them very soon so I don't feel the need to keep this one.

    Definitely does. I've played many solid top laminate back and sides ukes that still have a nice complexity in their sound and lots of resonance in the high frequencies. No real reason to doubt that...

    To be honest, when I heard they were doing luthier built stuff I assumed they were contributing with a local luthier to them. I would've liked to see that as well. Then again, Slovenia is a really...

    I don't really know why I wrote it quite like that. I basically meant that it's nice to see a properly high-end uke from Flight that's over a grand instead of those really nice mid-tier ukes around...

    Very nice, I basically agree with everything regarding the looks and value. I really like the subtle colours offered for these models. The sort of baby blue coloured one that Bazmaz reviewed is...

    I agree with most of the others. My first thought about the case was "yuck". It looks gaudy. I know it's synthetic but anything that even reminds me of something made out of animal fur - particularly...

    A couple of weeks ago I noticed these quite nice looking tenors listed on Flight's website

    Their terms and conditions say that customers outside the UK should contact them for prices without VAT. Essentially, you can cut 20% off the price if you live outside the UK but then of course you...

    Now that I've had the chance to try a few of aNueNue's high-end models I've concluded that the Moon Birds are probably the best value for the money at that high-end. While the Koa Birds are very nice...

    Those things are selling like hotcakes right now. I was tempted to get one as a travel uke but I thought I'd let other people enjoy since they're so much in demand, especially as I'd probably just...

    The purpose of a side sound port is to benefit the player by directing the sound more towards them. However, it's clearly a luxury feature, and at least in my opinion not a necessary one at all. I've...

    I've actually been wondering why their stock has been lacking recently while many European uke shops get plenty of new aNueNue ukes fairly regularly. No doubt they're popular in the US and sell out...
