If you’re thinking of giving yourself an Applause ukulele for Christmas, Guitar Center are having a sale on the Applause UAE20. You can pick one up for $140, or $125 if you use the code ‘TENOFF’ (that code works for a lot of their other uke stuff as well, but not the Martin 5K).
The vellum of a banjo ukulele must be an irresistable temptation to the artistic type. Walter might not have been much of an artist but, bless him, he was an old romantic. If you’re looking to pull the same trick, this May Bell needs a bit of vellum work done (but you might want to whisper the word ‘thumbnail’ into the seller’s ear).
No short of ukulele kitsch/tat at the moment including a ukulele mug and ukulele bottle opener.
