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.

Thank you, I really enjoyed the links. The instrument I am looking is Portuguese. I do not the maker but am excided to see it. This is the picture the seller put in his ad. I will post an update after I see it.

I'm joining this group just to ask - are you looking at/getting a Giannini?

Here's a pic:

Have fun looking!  I have a recently-purchased Giannini Craviola (Brazil Series), and I love it!

No, it is like the first four strings of a 5 string banjo. You can tune it any way you wish. Tenor is fine.

I am going this weekend to look at a cavaquinho. I've done a little research and Is it understand what the instrument is, but ...   Does one tune and play it like a guitar?

I have a tipple, a cavaquinho, a baritone, a tenor, a piccolo guitar, a couple of banjo ukes and about 6 or 7 sopranos. I never get tired of playing the things.

My wife says I have UAS (Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome). So true; I have 7 now and looking at another old tenor.

Welcome Don and T Will. Not much has gone on here lately. I have been pretty busy, but am slowing down now that winter is on the way.

You can never have enough ukes.
