I'll share something I thought I overheard while I was waiting for the Taylor Guitar factory tour to start last week (in El Cajon, CA).  Taylor may be experimenting with making ukuleles, starting with a special edition of only 30.  I may have misunderstood completely, but has anyone else heard anything like that?

Anyone in here?

There is considerably more models available in store than listed here. Especially Kala models.

Comment by Craig Fowler on March 17, 2012 at 5:10pm

Mahalo, Kala, Fender and Martin  are the brands available locally (or online) (Long and McQuade)

Check out the link below see the models I have to choose from.

What do you recommend as a good beginner ukelele? I have not yet made a purchase but want to add it to my ever growing list of stringed instruments. Like to keep my purchase under $100 unless that means you end up with a poor quality instrument. Is a soprano sized instrument the way to go.

Hi, guys,

That particular soundhole shape is the so-called "boca de raia" (rayfish mouth).

Many cavaquinhos made in Minho (North Portugal -  cradle of cavaquinho) - but not all Portuguese cavaquinhos - feature that particular soundhole shape. 

Maybe T Willi's instrument is made by Domingos Machado, at Tebosa, Braga

in the very homeland of cavaquinhos, ukes, and the like... if so, it is probably a high-class instrument.

I leave a link for a picture you may like to see...

I love the sound hole on that T Will.

It is also nice to see that Giannini is still in business. I had one in the 70s.

I have a builder in Michigan who makes cavaquinhos. Gary Zimnicki makes ukes and guitars as well, and does custom design.
