It's not a lot of cash if you are interested in making a life long investment on a timeless instrument that will be a prized heirloom for years to come. Or whatever. You could buy a lot of Warmoth stuff for that kind of cash. I think Tiny Tim is playing one of those in heaven right now. RIP Tiny!! I look forward to joining you soon!!
Dammit honey, I don't care if the kids need braces..I need a koa ukelele. How come nobody around here looks out for my needs? Tell those kids not to be so selfish and that crooked teeth look better than a mouth full of metal.
