    Default Buying or Selling in 2020

    Do any of you have plans to buy or sell any ukuleles in 2020? I never plan to buy, but then something turns up, and I can't resist. I have no plans to buy, but I would like to sell some.

    I feel a poll coming on - for last year.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I’ve no buying planned beyond the ones that are already ordered (a Bonanza Homestead baritone that should arrive this week) and a GoldTone Microbass that should arrive EOM). I’d like a 5-string bass and a uke bass with round wounds. I’m fighting them, but those are the likely areas I’d succumb to GAS.

    I sold a uke and a couple of guitars in December and I have a couple more (two sopranos, and possibly a concert) that I’m not playing that I should move out. The Homestead and Microbass may push out my current baritone and ubass.

    I'm planning to sell a few this year. Those may include a Pono Concert, a couple of Pono Tenors, a Blackbird Farallon, and maybe a couple of K-brand ukes.

    I also have too many guitars, and plan to sell my Martin D-18 and 000-18, and maybe a classical guitar or two.

    I have no plans, but there's an auction house just up the road from me which runs specialist musical instrument auctions. There's always the possibility that something will catch my eye. A couple did last year, but both went for a price above what I bid.

    No plans to buy or sell any ukes, (or other instruments), but you never know what might become available.....

    I rarely plan to buy. It just happens when something appears that triggers my UAS.

    I do need to sell some this year. But it's hard to decide which ones. I've donated three tenors. Thinking about selling a couple of Ponos. Tiny Tenor? A Kala Elite? Maybe a Moodyville? An Opio? I just don't play them very often. Arrgh!

    Definitely an Ohana & a KM soprano. I bought for other people, and they decided to go guitar instead.

    Decisions, decisions. A good problem to have I suppose.

    Don't really plan on buying another uke for now, but I'd like a Beltona Resonator to try out and a longneck soprano with a radiused neck to try as well........yea never know when the $$$, the instruments, and the stars will aline for a buy......

    What I need to do is work on my skills.......that's my plan for now....

    I'm planning on selling (or donating) ukuleles that I no longer play. While I have no plans to buy any new instruments this year, one never knows when an irresistible opportunity might present itself.

    I don't have plans to buy or sell this year. I hope to concentrate on playing the ones I already have. I should be getting the Bonanza Homestead I ordered at the end of Nov. '19 by the end of this month. I'll then have 6 ukes, the majority of which were unplanned buys. I've exceeded my unplanned buys allotment so if anything I'd be a seller but I probably won't be doing that either.
    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    I somehow bought four 'ukuleles in December so I should lie low for most of 2020 (unless something really good jumps out and bites me on the arse).
