    I'm a bit of an outlier, as my Cocobolo Concert is one of the few made with a Cedar top. I've not been able to compare it to an all-Cocobolo instrument, but it's got a very sweet, mellow tone, very...

    Canada and Australia have already said they're not participating. I'm expecting Japan to cancel no later than early April, maybe sooner as more countries pull out.

    All the more reason to use Paypal, and NOT the "friends & family" option that provides zero protection if you get scammed. If you care about your money, accept the fact that you're going to have to...

    Is it now or has it been recently a problem with new members posting scam sales? If yes, then a minimum number of "quality" posts (not just "thumbs up" or "OK") would be helpful. I'm a member of a...

    A Cocobolo Tenor would be a good fit, but good luck finding one. Most people are reluctant to turn theirs loose.

    If you have multiple ukuleles (and many, if not most of us do), you should have at least one tuned Low "G". Unless you don't want to, of course. :cool:

    Thanks for that input. I've seen photos of the Ohana 85 and I was wondering how it performs. Glad to hear that it works well for you. I'm pretty sure this is going to be the route I'll take but I...

    I've finally gotten to the point where I'm considering ordering a custom-built ukulele from a luthier.

    Unless the current owner was using his Cocobolo uke as a fly swatter, I'd say go for it. I'm a happy Cocobolo owner and honestly, I've never heard anyone say bad things about them. And that price is...

    This may tempt me to try Aquila strings again. Sugars sounded good, but the squeak was a deal breaker. Thanks to Mimmo for continuing to innovate and support the ukulele community.

    Pono makes great tenors although they're made in Indonesia, not USA. In your price range, I think a Pono would definitely meet your needs.
