    Default Do you still have your first one?

    I don't have my first instrument at all (guitar & bass) yet thinking when I get my 3rd ukulele that I might just donate my first one that cost me $47 to Goodwill. But then something stops me.

    Yeah, still have mine 15 years later. Have probably had 50 ukes since then, many of them come in and gone out,...………..but will always keep the 1st.

    My first uke is sitting right by my desk in its case, the Pono MBD(2), a Buy-it-Now I was lucky to find on eBay several years ago.

    I gave away 6 of my first bought ukes, but I kept my 4th uke purchase, that's my Kala KA-SLNG long neck soprano, it's often what I pick up just to noodle on.

    I still have my first guitar that I have now owned for more than 40 years. But for my first uke I went cheap and got one of those Alulu ones from e-Bay. It was junk and not worth keeping around. Lesson learned ... you get what you pay for (and sometimes less).

    I gifted my first one to my teenage surrogate granddaughter, who then brought it along on our river rafting trips so we could jam together.

    Swapped mine for a concert same model. The tenor was too big. Love it and play it every day
