    Default Here's the pics...Thanks to some new friends here!

    Well, I went from NO ukes to THREE in just one week, mainly due to the help of some new-found friends here who had a uke or two for sale, and to many others who made such great suggestions, and still others who have posted such valuable information in the past! I'm still doing a LOT of homework here on this great site, but if I waited to read it ALL I would have never OWNED anything! There's a LOT to read here!!

    Anyway....here's what has found it's way to my home in since I joined this forum last week:



    Here's all three neatly lined up...sorry about my poor photography!







    The Cordoba 25SK Soprano....Gary, it was everything you promised and more....thanks!



    The Baritone...a really nice mahogany instrument Made In Brazil



    The GString TK6 (Tenor Koa 6 String) Thanks Nik, for an AWESOME deal on a spectacular instrument! (And thanks for the extras you included with it!


    Now, after laboriously tuning these bad boys, I have had the pleasure of playing around a little with each one....it's hard to say so early in the game which is going to be my favorite, as each has it's own unique personality, but it isn't too early to thank all of you, especially the guys named here, for helping me get started on my path to a VERY cool new hobby!
    Thanks Guys!

    Thanks Seeso! I may be losing one already...My youngest son, who's 10, and plays the piano, very nicely, and the guitar, amazingly well for his age, has asked to "fool around" with the Baritone, and is playing a couple chord progressions as I type, having easily transposed his guitar playing ability over to the Baritone with the words, "Dad, this is easy!".

    GOD! To be THAT young again...when it was so simple to pick up something new and just DO it!

    I actually had a really nice Giannini dreadnought acoustic back in the very early 70's.....guess I'm dating myself! But I remember it was very sweet rosewood back and sides (maybe even brazilian, come to think of it...what would it be worth now??) with a sitka spruce top, all solid woods, that would have rivaled any other brand in it's day. I wish I still had it!
