    I guess it would depend on your future plans for the instrument. If you want it just put back in condition for playing, a good, local luthier should be able to take care of it fairly easily. If...

    I heard rumors that he might be working on a similar book, except arranged for High G rather than Low G. That'll also be a must purchase for me.

    I bought two; my custom Jupiter Tenor and an Ohana Baritone. If you count the custom build I purchased and then returned because of quality issues, it's three.

    In general, I agree that the appearance of the wood for a lot of factory-built ukuleles has recently declined. My relatively-inexpensive KoAloha concert was built in 2015 and I'd put the wood up...

    Cocobolo definitely ships with real Worth Browns.

    Not sure if they're hugely different from the Browns but I'd definitely check out the Uke Logic Soft Tension strings.

    Why Mango?

    Just curious...does the sound quality of a Mango wood ukulele override its ugliness? Honestly, it would have to be an amazing-sounding instrument to justify the appearance. I'd be tempted to play it...
