    I’d like to try a Hive since I’m saving for one. It’s all blind faith at this point.

    I’d also like to try a vintage Martin 1 and 3, as well as a Mya Moe in cherry.

    I like tons of ukes, but even if a dream ukulele was offered for free from a person that made it smell heavily of smoke, I’m out.

    I think there are some flaws in logic here:

    1) Any seller can charge whatever they like. The market will dictate whether the prices stick and, if they do, then it's not that the ukes aren't worth...

    I’ve played guitar for over 20 years, but had horrible technique that, when combined with my playing habits where I would put in about 4-5 hours of straight practice, did a number on my wrist to the...

    I definitely don’t recommend guitar if you’re having issues with the uke. I had to move from the guitar to uke when playing guitar for more than an hour would kill my playing for days. The necks are...

    The pineapple Sunday I reviewed was maple and spruce (both known for highs) and the first thing I thought was also banjo, which has good and bad points. I like the sudden decay and way it would cut...

    I’ll definitely back it again. I was sorely tempted to do the concert reward, but we’re in the process of buying a house and my wife would skin me alive for such fiscal irresponsibility.

    When I was a kid and able to spend hours guilt-free riffing away on guitar, I did. I had a lot of fun doing it, too. I wouldn't say I was practicing so much, though - more like I was just playing...

    They're my favorite kind of guitars and they're significantly more versatile than a lot of people give them credit for.

    Depends on the specific guitar. Gretsch has been using center blocks recently and those don't exactly make for light guitars.

    Also, I've never lost picks in f-holes. They're too small and far...

    Sure. I only mentioned Hawaiian ukes because that’s what most of my experience is in.

    I like them. The strings are a little tighter and my playing is generally faster because of it, but the tone isn’t as deep. I’m especially a fan of KoAloha’s supers.

    A slotted headstock will likely bump you out of the Hawaiian market. Cutaways not as much, but they do raise the price.

    I'm thinking Martin. It's got a stronger name with guitarists who are already used to spending crazy amounts on collectible instruments anyway.

    I think they're good for a uke that you don't have to worry about and just strum along on camping trips or the like, but I'd never go to it for the tone. Or the playability.

    That's a budget that opens up a lot of possibilities. I'd watch The Ukulele Site for a while and wait for something to really strike your fancy, maybe in the Hawaiian section of the site.

    I will say that while I really like Kala's imports, I have yet to play an Elite that impressed me to the same extent as other American makers in that price range.

    Jazz is what really grabbed me about the ukulele, too. There’s something awesome about the chords’ tones when played on a small instrument that makes me happy.
