Topic: NUD

Howard at the music shop I work at has decided to start a ukulele orchestra so I was forced into getting one (honestly I was really, really, REALLY forced lol).

As a soprano is a little small when used to a guitar, I opted to get a tenor:

....and as you can see from the label it was made in Portugal, the home of these instruments.

The only thing I do not like are the 'gold' fitting. They will shortly be changed.

Roger, I don't know much about uke's but yours looks real nice.
One day I must pick one up and give it a try.
Hope you have lots of fun with your new little baby!

Re: NUD

Roger, are you having a "SENIOR MOMENT"! What's next - a bango? Becoming BFF's with a drummer? Have you sought professional help? I know it took a lotta courage to admit your short coming's is a public place like this but that is the 1st step in helping yourself. I'm here for you, buddy.

By the way, that Is  a good looking Uku.

Re: NUD

Whaaaat the!?!

Okay Roger, that is some nice looking Koa (even if it is on a toy guitar-wanna-be)..... checked out their website (and improved my understanding of the Portuguese language a little more, but Hablo Espanol which helps).  But dang if they don't make some purty instruments, starting at the bargain basement price of 500 Euros!  I do hope your buddy gave you a serious break on the purchase.... or at least a really really easy payment plan.

Have fun with her, and Happy NUD!
