    Nice photos. What's the story on the B & E strings? I haven't seen any quite like that before. I also just acquired a Baritone (Pono Acacia Deluxe). It is fun to play; but then again, so are the tenors. Enjoy, Don

    Congrats on the new Mainland! I have a two - a matte soprano that looks like your baritone's baby sister, and a cedar-topped rosewood baritone with Guadalupe strings also.

    How do you like those strings? I think they work really well on the bari.

    So you are saying that they are a lot like lays potato chips?


    [QUOTE=jer;1957948]Welcome to the site and to the uke!
    IF you buy others? If you can manage to only buy and play one you are in the minority for sure....I try to keep only one at a time usually, but I've gone through many...same with guitars... Currently I don't own any guitars though.. The uke has taken over for now. I hope you'll at least try a soprano at some point too, and the other sizes. Then there is string experimentation...It seems like they make even more difference with ukes than with steel string guitars just due to all of the available materials and sets.
    Of course you're ready to play from the start using DGBE tuning. If you're mostly a rhythm player you might not even miss the two extra strings...For me, even though the uke has a couple of less strings I find it more freeing somehow...I don't know how to explain it. It really makes you look at playing different and may even help your guitar playing. Enjoy!

    P.S.
