    Yes, it's a bit like how I view Fender - of course they COULD make an absolute killer ukulele - they have the skills and the setup to do that. Instead they go derivative cheap and bland sounding. I...

    To be honest, I may well have described lyrachord wrong too - being a trademarked thing for Ovation they are quite vague about what it actually is.

    FWIW - the materials on the Flea certainly...
