    Yamaha APXT2

    I had that Yamaha years ago. It’s a quality instrument like everything Yamaha makes. Thought it was a rather tinny sounding but that’s an issue you’re going to have with any tiny-bodied steel string. Personally I’d choose the Cordoba mini. Note tho that the Cordoba is nylon string so you’re not...

    Advice Requested: Convert a guitar into a uke

    Guessing the scale length on that guitar is 22 to 23 inches. Tune it GCEA, but an octave lower than standard uke tuning.

    Unknown ukulele acquisition...

    It’s not a Harmony (Harmonys have square headstocks). This was made by United in New Jersey. 1950s. Compare to this one: https://jakewildwood.blogspot.com/2016/02/1950s-united-made-baritone-ukulele.html?m=1

    trade feeler: Kala travel soprano for banjolele?

    I have a brand-new Kala travel soprano, solid spruce over mahogany thinbody, with matching gigbag. It was an impulse buy, one I should have resisted in retrospect. I played it for five minutes when I got it and knew the thinbody wasn't for me. So I packed it back up and it's been sitting for...

    I'm continuing to clean out my bookcases. I bought these when I had the brilliant idea to try bass guitar. Don't see why they wouldn't be applicable to UBass though! - Hal Leonard Bass Method Complete (Books 1, 2, & 3 in a single binding) - Hal Leonard First 50 Songs You Should Play on Bass...

    FS vintage Mastro plastic banjolele clock!

    I've enjoyed this kitschy thing for a few years now, but I think it's time for someone with equally bad taste to enjoy it! This was an ebay score - the story I got from the seller was that it had hung in a boutique guitar shop in Chicago for many years before he acquired it. It didn't work...

    FS Lanikai flamed maple concert w/ HSC

    Selling this like-new Lanikai all-laminate, satin finish, flamed maple concert uke with an equally like-new Musicians Gear hard side case. This is my son's uke - he's had it for 5 or 6 years, I think, during which time it has been virtually untouched. He's a terrific trumpet player, and can...

    Harmonica resources??

    About once a year I decide I'm going to learn to play harmonica. So I buy one (because I can't find the one I bought the year before) and fuss around on it for a day or two before setting it aside. Mainly I think it's because I'm trying to do it without any instruction, and that clearly isn't...

    FS Kala longneck & Gretch camp uke - TWOFER DEAL!

    My son (the REAL musician in the family) needs a trumpet upgrade, so I need to free up some cash. Brass instruments are not cheap. For sale is a Kala longneck soprano (KA-SLNG) and a Gretsch Camp Uke (one of the modern repros, not vintage). Both are in fine condition, with only very light...
