    FS: Pono AT $140

    Specs here. I bought this during an HMS sale, so I'm passing the savings on to you. It's a GREAT uke but I just prefer sopranos.

    It has two tiny dings where the back meets the sides. See pics....

    Vintage Sheet Music 6

    This is from the 20s and I think it would be called a novelty song. "The Coat and Pants Do All the Work but the Vest Gets All the Gravy." Guy comes home from work, takes off his suit, and sits down...

    Heftone is back!

    After a looong time (4 years) Brian Hefferan is back posting videos. There's two new ones with Lil Rev. But dip back into his channel too if you love Martins and ragtime and more. Awesome musician.

  11. Vintage Sheet Music 4: California Here I Come (instrumental, 1924)

    I overdubbed the intro with a low G because the sheet music called for it. Actually there's one low F note too but I couldn't reach that without downtuning. Otherwise it's the usual - one live take...

    Weeshan, closed up sound is not a characteristic of koa. In general, Asian factory ukes are over built. This could be the closed up sound you're hearing. It's what I hear whenever I pull a uke off...

    Oh yeah, an album is a great idea! It would bring in more donations and I'd buy one for sure. It will be exciting to hear the ukes and how each luthier turned the tree into music. That's an all star...

    Wow, congrats 2x! Now that is a work of art. From the front you think it's a solid body and then you slowly rotate it and voila. Beautiful lines and a harmony of wood and metal.

    Very interesting...

    Ah, I see. That is a major project.

    Adding fretboard binding after the fact?

    Hey guys could you answer a question please? Is it possible to add fretboard binding to a uke after the build is complete? Is that something you could take to a luthier and he would glue it on?
