    My impression is that the Islander GL6 and the Cordoba Mini might come from the same Chinese factory. Very similar necks, tuners, veneers, etc.

    What I see is that most of the "hating" or "not-bonding-with" comes from people who enjoy their Kalas and Ohanas. Thus, my guess is that this is about managing expectations: For most people, a Pono...

    I think you're giving a very accurate description of what a "classic" ukulele vs. a more "modern", more guitar-like build like your Cedar/Rosewood Mainland would typically sound like. Sounds like...

    Really, what year was it made? Would love to learn more about this. In all my years of following the Pono brand very closely, I have never heard that they ever built some instruments in the...

    Instead of the finish, could it also be the type of wood itself that makes for a somewhat tighter sound? Mango is often attributed to have this effect (which I'm sure is desired for certain types of...

    For all I know, Pono ukes and guitars are still being produced in Bandung, Java (Indonesia). They had a brief period of experimenting with a Chinese factory early on in this decade, but for the...

    Elderly recently had the all laminate version of the Romero Creations ST available for $269 USD, but they were sold out quickly. This version comes in a box with all kinds of starter stuff and...

    Ok, the one on eBay is a Soprano with a natural finish (not gloss), no wood upgrade, and probably a couple years. This model was usually priced around $750 USD from US stores. I say "was" because...

    Could you provide a link or more details? I'm in Switzerland, so I might be able to assess credibility of that deal. The price sounds pretty good, depending on what size and wood grade it is.

    Bringing this up once again. The case sits unused in my home.

    Yes, ukes can be overbuilt. But usually, this would result in a twangy sound with little to no sustain, and this isn't the case with your Pono. Nor is it with most of the Ponos I have played. Out of...

    Urgh, this is the worst kind of stupid: it's the stupidity (and perhaps jealousy) of those who are to ignorant to create or produce something for themselves, so they are trying to drag everybody else...

    Slade, what kind of KoAloha is yours? I see a shaped top brace and also a rosette, so it's definitely not their "regular" model, right?

    Define "high quality in tone and sound". Maybe it's a question of different tastes. I'm mostly looking for a full, deep, guitar-like sound, and the two Kinnard ukes which passed my hands didn't...

    The answer to this question will most likely be no, as with most instruments specifically built for nylon strings. I don't think they would advise you to take that risk on an instrument in this price...

    Along your itinerary, Uke Boutique in Amsterdam is probably your best bet. Neither Berlin nor Burgebrach are close to Hamburg, at least not in a European understanding. To be frank, most ukulele...
