    If and when I sell a Uke it will be a killer deal. I have no problem losing hundreds if I enjoyed the time playing it. I don’t ever intend to sell when I buy, but every deep scratch on a $1000 dollar plus uke is about $100 off the original price in my book. I just get frustrated with being absent minded. My nice Ukes get played mostly, and if wear comes from a lot of time spent with normal play no problem.

    I have yet to receive a perfect Uke. The Moon Bird is pretty close though. Should have been the Clara. Either way I forget about all the imperfections a Uke May have after the first strum.

    Dang it! I'd buy those socks in a heartbeat, but I don't think the unisex size will fit my sized 14 feet.

    You'll never know if you don't try.

    I would want one from head to toe, though.

    That's not a benefit for me, I don't need her permission in the first place.

    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    I got to thinking about this getting ready for church today and one could always wear a tie to protect their ukulele from buttons and buckles if that is a concern. Think about it. I'm sure there are ukulele themed ties that one could sport. Look good and protect your uke at the same time.

    My favorite top in the cooler/colder months is a full zip sweatshirt over a t-shirt. If the full zip is open, the zipper can scratch the uke I'm playing. I found this out the hard way, of course.

    But proper Ukukele-wear would have a bow tie! No protection unless you wear your uke really high!

    But maybe we're looking at this the wrong way. We don't need to wear the protection: the Uke should wear a superhero cape!
