    The spalting is gorgeous. The abalone inlay is...

    Because it fits with the notes in “My Dog Has Fleas.” It just wouldn’t work any other way: “Dog Fleas My Has,” “Has Dog My Fleas Dog,” etc. You see? ��

    I always assumed that the tuning was identified as “GCEA” because that’s how the notes sound when singing “My Dog Has Fleas.” It wouldn’t make sense any other way, “Dog My Fleas Has,” Fleas Dog Has...

    Rafter, I think you’re right. The archtop case does look cool, and I suppose it is a bit stronger on the one side due to the arch. And, when carrying your Uke in it, people would be more likely to...
