Simon Candy replied to Gary Wilson's discussion Acoustic Guitar learning

hue commented on John Gundrum's group Cakewalk SONAR Users

Jim Yates commented on Rob Bourassa's group UKULELE PLAYERS
"I saw this Harmony soprano in a local flea market on Sunday.  It seems to play all right, but not really loud.  The fretboard is molded plastic and I'd guess the body is plywood.  Can anyone tell me any more about this little…"

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!
