    I've just bought a Koa Kalane soprano pineapple shape. I'm very pleased with it. One noticeable feature is its chunky neck. From the surface of the fretboard to the back of the neck, it measures 22mm...

    You're right, Ms Bean, I did use the pound symbol. (Pounds)172 was what I was trying to say. Not a bad price for an all solid wooden ukulele, but it was a bit of a chancy purchase. Fortunately, it...

    That's looking beautiful, Gerard. Right now, I'm waiting for a new soprano Pineapple to be delivered, but it won't be as attractive as yours.

    There is only one ukulele that matters to me, at any given time - that's the one I'm playing.

    Where ukes are concerned, I'm promiscuous.

    I've given some thought to the question of how many ukuleles I really need. In my more lucid moments, I conclude that three would be my minimum number. One sturdy cheapie to keep in the car, and two...
