    Yes, I do. It's a Makala MK-S and was a gift from my sister, and I intend to always keep it, and I do play it daily.

    my first ukulele is sitting here now on the floor staring up at me with it's one eye and lifting frets. a koloa ku600/silver creek soprano.

    it keeps my front door from slamming in the wind. it's a doorstop.

    No but see it almost daily. It was a Makala tenor and several years ago, I gave it to a co-worker to keep/learn on.

    I still have my first uke, a Kohala(Lanikai) concert from the Costco in Hawaii Kai. $100 with a tuner and gig bag. Even though it's my beater uke, I don't think I'll ever part with it.

    No, it was a Dolphin which needed a lot of work. After a lot of tweaking I was finally satisfied and gave it to my son.
