Okay, I guess it's true. Here's a link: http://www.taylorguitars.com/blog/guitars-more/taylor-talks-koa-uku...
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?
I am still here DJ, but it's not too active.
Anyone in here?
There is considerably more models available in store than listed here. Especially Kala models.
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.
Long & McQuade Ukeleles
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.
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 teach Ukulele and slack key guitar and we Use a book called DAILY UKULELE
BY JIM BELOFF this book is desined for ukulele songs and has pictures of all the chords at the top of each page Best of luck
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.
