Ukulele Window Shopping

Three chances to buy ukuleles handled by the greats this week:

– Lewis Fine Resophonic Ukulele is up for auction at Bonhams (via Ukulelia – I agree with them, the estimate seems very low).

– John King’s 5 string Giussani> (although it wasn’t used for the Jumpin’ Jim “classicle ukulele” book as claimed – that was all Fluke).

– And the Jake Shimabukuro signature uke from last week has had a price drop.

John King’s isn’t the only five-string uke. here’s another one.

The Bluebird Valentines ukulele turns up a little late.

Kepasa soprano ukulele.

Kala skateboard.

    I own a Kepasa Madeira myself. Stunning ukulele!
    They play and sound even better then they look.

    The Blueberry and Kapasa’s headstock just don’t suit my headstock-fetish, I’m afraid. Far too dull.

    I like stuff such as the Samich “Greg Bannett” headstock, and Collings, tho the latter is ridunculously expensive.
