    Default NUD--Big Island KRP-TR

    Hey all,
    I was downtown in Naha, Okinawa Thursday night and just browsing in a music store I seldom visit and came upon this beauty. I have to say, this is quite a nice uke. Aquila aren't my favorite strings but when I can I will put some Worth clears on it. Today after work I plan on getting to know her a bit more. Just thought I would share.

    Last time I was in downtown Naha, it was a small, old town, with no buildings higher than 3 stories. Lots of old buildings looked to be about as old as America. No large restaurants. No ukes. A massage parlor and some bars, a few small businesses. 1963-1965. I was stationed at Onna Point (no trace of the little communication station up there on a cliff top.

    Phil, you wouldn't recognize Naha nowadays. Traffic is unbearable, that is why I seldom get down there.
