    From memory, in 2019 I bought 3 and sold 4, possibly 5. In 2020 I will sell one, possibly 2 and don't plan on buying any but ...............

    I didn't do too badly on ukes in most of 2019 - 2018 was the year of the uke. 2019 was basses.

    In 2019 two ukes came in and one went out: I bought a soprano which I'd planned to string GDAE, but which I've barely touched, and a cheap baritone, which I like enough that I have another incoming. In December I sold two guitars that hadn't been played in years and my lovely blue Kala Tenor. That one hurt, but between the baritone and the Klos tenor it wasn't getting much play.

    I ordered three others: a Bonanza Homestead uke scheduled to arrive Friday, an Aklot U-bass which I returned, and a GoldTone MicroBass to replace it which should arrive around the end of January.

    Non-uke purchases were a fretted and a fretless bass guitar, a digital piano, and a kazoo.

    Bought a few. Sold a few. Started the year with 4 ukes, ended it with 4 ukes. Learned that I’m not a soprano person, even concert scale sopranos. Happy with what I have now.

    Bought several tenors. Sold two. Donated three. Bought five inexpensive concerts for donations.

    I really enjoy playing a wide variety of tenor ukuleles. They all sound different. I rather like the ones I own. Some, are just amazing.

    2020 will be the year to seriously reduce the number of ukes I own. I've learned a lot in the last two years about woods, builds, neck shapes, tuners, strings, sound, etc. But, I'm out of room, and my wife is getting annoyed with all these cases and instruments everywhere.

    If I say it often enough, I'll start to believe it...

    I bought a custom uke, sold it. Bought a reso uke here.
    Sold a banjo uke, bought another from Mim.

    Many uke transactions in 2018, zero in 2019. I have my regular players and the ones that languish in their cases. I should probably sell the latter group... but I'm too lazy.

    Yes, I bought a dolphin for my granddaughter.
    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.
