    8 Days. I think I'm good for a while on ukes, but I am getting a "gear itch".

    Mind you, the first couple of years saw quite a few arriving at my door.

    Been holding strong on the no-new-in-until-some-go-out. My last uke the "temporary" baritone I got 189 days ago. I've now crossed to more months playing than ukes (last time I counted it was more ukes than months - that was an eye-opener). Outside of ukes, it's been about 2 months since I got my fretless bass.

    This month I passed on a u-bass that got as far as talking to the seller (not sure that counts - he didn't respond to my last message), three ukes that got as far as into my cart before backing out, and a baritone (that was almost exactly the one I had been waiting for when I got the temp one) that I just flat out resisted.

    I suspect this will kick up again if and when I get around to selling the backlog

    My name is BacchettaDave, and I've abstained from buying 'ukulele for 17 days.


    Flea, grant me the serenity to be content with the ukes I own
    and the discipline to play each one every day,
    And don't bite me again until my needs change.
