    More photos. This uke must go. Its a crime that it is not being played by someone who can do it justice. I am open to offers.

    Norway is not an EU member. There is a 25% tax on all items imported so it looks like I need to find a domestic supply. Makala dolfin sounds like decent choice.

    Kala Makala looks like an option. About $45 from a local agent. What would be best or younger kids? Soprano or concert?

    I would never call anyone those things. Only reffering to the comment and not knowing it was said "tonque in cheek". I never made the cat joke either :)

    Well he just gave me a full refund on a uke I was not happy with. Did not even ask me to return it. I don't know of any other Ebay sellers who do that.

    Well I'm sorry but that's a silly and rather ignorant comment. One could also thank the likes of Brucewei for attempting to stop the spread of the ukulele. That would be equally stupid.. Same thing.....

    Much as I like real shellac (the real stuff) , it does tend to chip easily. I would like something with gloss. Maybe acrylic varnish thinned out and about 6 coats just rubbed on with a sponge.
