    Honestly, not having to deal with shipping would be a big plus for me, particularly as it is a one of a kind, as I would hate for anything to happen to it. Let me know.

    Rubbish spot for a crack. Definitely try the humidity/glue trick. Cracks with the grain often grow, and the bridge is a bad place for a crack to end up, as I'm sure you know.

    I think it takes a long time to get to know an instrument. Jake Shimabukuro describes it as a relationship. So, yes, different ukuleles can sound quite different from one another.

    It's funny. My second ukulele was a Mike Pereira custom Zebrawood concert pineapple. Then, deciding it was a bit too.... I don't even know, I got a Mya-Moe Maple and Cedar. It's a lovely ukulele.

    Sold me my first ukulele, a Kala Acacia Concert. I gave it way a few years ago, trying to spread some of the ukulele love that I got from Mike.

    What a treasure he was.

    The Dominant just means the V chord of a key. Every chord has a name, and the V is called the Dominant.
