    Agree with you. Besides the serial number, the finish on the front looks awful. The joint on the bottom looks poor too.

    I would stay away.

    This looks like a masterpiece!

    I used to be disappointed that many gorgeous and wonderful hand made ukes were tenor sized, which I do not play. Now I breathe a sigh of relief as I would want to...

    Well, one roadmap commonly followed is to start with one for about $50 - 100. Then get one for around $200 that might be solid wood. After that, post that you are looking for a $300 - 500 one in your...

    It was listening to a soprano that got you started on acquiring one. So it is the sound, not the feel, that you are seeking.

    First, there are some here that believe (and put their money where their mouth is) that 60 ukuleles may not be enough. This is a nice collection. Just eyeing some of them, there are many that would...

    Pick the one you like. If hard to choose, save $150. If they are both at the same shop, ask them if there is a difference in how they play and then choose based on their answer.

    I am in complete agreement here. A Hawaiian "K" uke at the same price is a better purchase in that they are "authentic", sound and play great, and hold value (so if you decide to part with it, you...

    I got my first there, a Cordoba 15M. Took a month to realize that it did not have good intonation when I started chord melody. Made many trips to the nearby GC and have never seen another uke there...

    I am always a bit surprised that there is so much feedback on going cheaper to save money on a first ukulele. I would look for one that sounds good and plays well first. Most "beginner" ukes do not...

    That is one cool looking uke. I especially like the abalone inlay "river". Will love to see a NUD when you get it.

    I don't believe this. If you plug in a $100,000 loan for 5 years at 5%, it comes to about $1900 per month for loan payments. Add rent, staffing, inventory costs, and you will lose money for the...

    That is a great set!

    On one level, I am glad that I am uncomfortable playing tenors so that my buying (and enjoyment) is limited to concerts and maybe sopranos.
