    A slotted bridge and a pin bridge are both deal breakers for me. I've been attracted to several ukes and ended up automatically rejecting them because of the bridge. I would never buy a uke with...

    My Bb practice song was "I'm Into Something Good" by Herman's Hermits. I found the chords on "Ultimate Guitar" and transposed it (using the handy buttons on the bottom of the screen) so you...

    Yes, a thinline uke is marketed as a "travel uke" which I always thought was kind of silly. If you are going to go to the trouble of traveling with a ukulele is that 1-inch and marginal difference in...
