love this picture! the colours, the room, the books, the ukes....I am a Ukeholic and it and watches, surfboards and bikes (push and motor) are my obsessions. I have no debts or ties as I'm semi retired (not rich). I save up a few hundred $$ here and there by not eating out much or doing expensive holidays etc.
I probably have more ukes than I can count as I like them as art as well as playing although i keep my solids in hardcases in a pantry.
Some friends think Im crazy but they spend up to $10k a year on overseas holidays and have nothing but memories afterwards. I dont have any expensive vices so I love collecting things I enjoy.
This is some of my concert ukes. View attachment 152497
I'll keep it in DGBE. Spent too many years learning Jazz chord shapes. Just sliding all the notes up the neck is going to be enough of a challenge for me. I have it now: cedar top with rosewood sides and back, in the master series lattice bracing using the Uke Logic soft super fluorocarbon A and E string and Tomastik-Infeld chrome flatwound D and G (they told me these are exactly the same, in fact, the origin of the Freemont Soloist). It's an absolutely gorgeous instrument and the sound is rich and clear, very much like a good, say $3k-$5k classical guitar. I absolutely LOVE it!Are you going to keep it in DGBE or use it as more of a tenor guitar?
