    I miss her.

    I am so sorry, Nickie. It hurts, and will hurt at unexpected times. My heart goes out to you.

    Hi from Los Angeles

    Hi Peggie - I still have my first ukulele - a solid spruce top concert Luna. It was sold set up by the vendor - The Ukulele Site - back when they still carried Luna brand. It is really nice and sentimental to me as I started my journey on it.

    Baritone Uke Sizes - HELP!

    I have a vintage Vega with a wonderful deep tone, and just picked up a 2013 Mainland from Jake Wildwood. Both are mahogany, but sound different in a good way.

    All Enya HPL models DISCONTINUED

    I gave two grandkids the round HPL camp uke model. It was quiet, but that was not a bad thing. The best aspects were that it had a truss rod and the neck disassembled from the body, so it was fantastic for packing in a suitcase.

    DIY: When side markers are not enough

    Dollar store stickers. My blue willow laminate sopranissino O' Nino has matching blue stars for side markers thanks to my granddaughter. Several of my ukes have reinforcement labels cause I am cheap and had some in my office. Plus, they are easy to see. https://www.avery.com/products/labels/6750

    Long neck worth it?

    I bought a Shima long neck soprano from UU Marketplace a few years ago in your price range. Really nice sound and beautifully made. I think both of your options are good choices if you get them with a set up, but keep an eye on the marketplace here as well. I have 4 fantastic ukes from here.

    Advice needed: ukuleles for classroom

    My suggestion is the Enya Nova U soprano. Amazon price was $39. It is what I am playing in this current cold spell, and it is my normal bedside uke. Comes with bag and accessories. It is what i suggest for my music club.

    Do YOU think a strap button devalues the instrument?

    I think it would devalue more after dropping the uke without a strap button. I That being said, if it is a two piece side and the lower bout strap button is at the seam, I would pass on a second hand uke.
