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.
Here's a link to the "Tuning Options" page on the Etros Music website:
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.
