    Congratulations to both of you.

    Today, I thought about maybe, possibly, selling a ukulele...
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don't begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Sold 1. Trashed out 2 (warped neck on 1, incurable buzz on the other). Bought 2. Have 1 for sale locally...

    So, I am currently at -1. Goal is -2, but it's early in the year.

    I had been trying to sell my MagicFluke SB Tenor, had an offer, declined it and closed thread. Now I reopened thread.
    Was waffling because of the personal laser-etching on it.

    Is it silly to keep some instrument for that reason if I'm not gonna play it?

    It wasn't as hard as I expected. I recently bought an acoustic guitar that had to be paid for somehow.

    My meager ukulele inventory listing below doesn't include the entry level ukuleles that I acquired along the way, but haven't figured out what to do with. I'm caught between only wanting to play my Kanilea 100% of the time and never touching another ukulele, and trying to get one of everything ever made. Lol.

    (Side story: The guy who bought my ukulele found it on Flea Market Music but coincidentally lives just a few blocks from me. I arrived at the scheduled time and his garage door opens, and inside a room full of surfboards and a custom shaping area. He makes the most beautiful custom surf boards you could ever imagine. We ended up talking surf boards for about half an hour. I was worried that I would end up keeping the ukulele and ordering a surf board. Fortunately, he paid cash, but I'm certain to order my next board there. My number of surfboards slightly exceeds ukuleles. For now.)
