    Default Nud :-)

    2 of my favorite things in life are ukuleles and The Beatles, so I couldn't resist this:

    https://thebeatlesstore.com/collecti...e-blue-ukulele

    I expected it to be a wall hanger only, but since it combines 2 of my favorite things, it would brighten my day just to see it.

    To my surprise, the action is good, and the intonation is good, too. Tone-wise, well, it sounds like a $26 ukulele would likely sound, but in tune, at least. I'm already thinking about a string change, since I tend to not like nylon strings anyway. Tuners are geared. Really not bad for a $26 ukulele, (IMO.)

    The box says that it's for ages 3+, so I figure I've got the + covered. LOL. But, I'll be playing it tonight with probably more enjoyment than a 3 year old. :-)

    Awesome... site still says on preorder. Would be interested to hear if a string change improves it.

    BTW, assume you are familiar with Greg Hawkes CD, The Beatles Uke. Highly recommended.

    Enjoy your new uke (would it raise some hackles if I said "toy"?)!

    Yes, I do have Greg Hawkes CD. Definitely enjoyable.

    Well, since it's for ages 3+, "toy" isn't out of line. It's definitely not one of those $10,000 Moore Bettahs, (not that I've ever seen one in person), and I didn't buy it as a "serious" ukulele. Like a good toy, it will be fun, though!
