    You don’t have to sell if you like them. Just saying.

    Pretty cool Jerry! You make the cigar boxes along with the one banjo uke? That banjo uke has a maple neck yes (I can't remember and I like the look of it)

    I enjoy receiving a new uke, but I'm also happy when I sell one, and my count goes down.
    I have to start selling some that I just don't play much anymore. I'm out of room!

    I got bored after being home with the flu for 8 days. (I was down with it for another 10.) No, it isn't a composite. It's handheld. I did use some telephoto to compress the image. And I had enough light on it to get good depth of field with a short-ish time. Took a bunch to get one without shake. That's a big reason I love digital: you can take a huge number of photos before running out of memory. Unlike the 36 shots on a roll of 35mm film.

    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    It is easy to write UAS off as a sickness which then takes the responsibility out of it, but really, for me, it is just no will power to say "No." Back in 2011 when I joined UU and for the next 4 years I purchased over 35 ukuleles. Then I started selling all but the keepers off (got down to 7) and I stopped reading UU for about 3 years. I was happy with my ukes. I was happy with the little bit of extra money I had in savings. Then last October I just decided to revisit my old friend UU. I was hooked again. Playing ukulele more. Engaging in discussions and then the buying and selling started. Since October 2018 to today:

    Purchased:
    1940's Martin style 1 Tenor
    1920's Martin Style 2 Soprano
    1968 Martin Style 1 Tenor
    1997 KoAloha soprano
    2019 Pineapple Sunday Prototype
    Kiwaya FS-5 soprano
    2019 KoAloha Tenor (quick passthrough)

    Traded:
    2011 Koaloha Tenor for 2002 Kamaka tenor

    Sold:
    2 Wow sopranos
    1 Star Bangled Banger Soprano
    1979 Vintage Kamaka HF-38
    2019 KoAloha Tenor
    2019 Pineapple Sunday Prototypes

    Currently up for sale:
    1940's Vintage Martin Style 1 tenor

    Soon to go up for sale:
    1 Wow
    1 banger
    2008 Koaloha Concert

    And then tonight I made an offer for a Pono soprano in The Netherlands so that I have an uke already there when I make my annual visit.

    Next week I visit the KoAloha Factory and who knows what!!!

    wow-- Postage alone is a killer.

    Help!!!!!!!

    Yes. I didn't put the banjo uke neck at enough of an angle, so it's less that perfect. I had to keep sanding down the bridge to adjust the action. Next time, I'll get it right. I like the slotted headstock necks.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Thanks. Digital is great.

    You forgot to put the 2019 Koaloha Tenor you sold into the purchase side. Can't sell what you don't have and couldn't have purchased it prior to 2018.

    You are right--I got the 2019 KoAloha Tenor in March and sold it to a buddy in June. Looking to get another one for myself next week.

    I generally play something every day. I have two or three by my TV chair, and I rotate them every few days. I haven't been playing much lately because of jobs around the house. Still, I go to two or three uke meetings a week, and I always bring one or two different ukes. I got down to 56, but then I gave in and ordered another one yesterday.
