    Slotted Headstocks

    I've got 4 in rotation, a concert, two tenors and a baritone. It's pretty random except for some reason Sunday is always baritone day. The ukuleles are on stands in one room.

    I play concerts, tenors with a low G and I have a lovely cedar top baritone as well. The rich deep sound of the baritone is the most satisfying, to me, of all the ukuleles I play. Sometime I think I...

    I've got one one of those that I really like and I just noticed that Kala has discontinued the model. Seems odd as I read it was popular.
