G'day Lawn Jocky, you needn't apologise, the 'Mango uke' you purchased sounds very nice indeed. I'm sure you will enjoy for years to come.
Cheers
Fongie P.S. Looking forward to the pics

'WOW', thats a serious looking uke, I like it very much. Very unusual have you played a uke similar before? I like to know what sound it brings out. Let us know.

Speaking of Larrivee uke's, one just popped up on ebay... at about the price range of a Parlor!
http://cgi.ebay.com/Larrivee-10KK-Gloss-FLAMED-SOPRANO-KOA-UKE-Breathtaking_W0QQitemZ330286873373QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item330286873373&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

Meanwhile, I'm happy with my Fluke Uke... yeah it's a plastic bowl back, but sounds 'good enough' for me for now, and I don't worry about banging it around!

G'day, I'm wondering if any of you good folks out there have the uke chords & lyrics to a song 'Judy Judy Judy' by Johnny Tillotson? Or any other artist.

Well Lawn that really helps. As you can see, we Aussies have not much of a choice in guitars especially Lavs. But again the same old thing $$$$. But your right, I'm leaning towards going for it 'cause these guitars comes around once in a bluemoon, especially for us Aussies.
Thanks

Don't take this wrong I own two Larrivee guitars and they are my #1 000-50 and #2 0-05 but it is too bad that Larrivee has a habit of building an instrument for a short time then discontinuing it. I guess I was quite lucky when I found the 0-05 because I have yet to see another.
                           I have seen other posts about your 0-05 but have you ever posted a picture?
                              And is the size a P or 00 size? I'd sure like to see (have ) it.

Too many guitars... But I keep thinking one more may just do it.

   That's one of the nicest I've ever seen. And besides it was made in the state I was born in. I like it.

Lawn Jockey,
    If this one does not work out for you, consider a KoAloha.
They may not have all the bling, but they are well built and are superb players.
I love my Larrivee, but I prefer the Tenor size.

Good Luck

Are you ready Lawn, here goes.  This is the uke I bought, it's a "Kanile'a Soprano" solid koa, this is the website to Kanile"a http://kanileaukulele.com and go to home page.  Now this is to the web page for "Musicguymic"  they are the people I bought the uke off from Hawaii and their web page is musicguymic@aol.com
Kanile'a do make tenors, barritones, concerts and sopranos, also they sell in the top of the range models with extras added.  This uke is a good looking uke with solid koa and very reasonably priced. 
Cheers,
Fongie
P.S. This is the photos of mine that I have just received, very happy with the service and communication and fast postage from musicguymic

I like Kamakas, Aren't they suppose to be the Martin of ukes?

My opinion is that Martin is the Martin of ukes! I would love a simple style O. And a Larrivée!

G'day mate, your dead right, thats what I was told about 'Kamakas'. But in todays world, ukes are more widespread through uke gospels, the world is cashing in and the technology is far and beyond our imagination as long as it's not made in China and the wood is good, ukulele made well is as good as Kamaka. In actual fact, I've got a Japanese make from the 60's and it's awesome. Oh, the tone, WHEW, you couldn't imagine. One thing I luv and thats buying old ukes, most are cheap (provided they're in top nik), but the sound from the old wood is unimaginable. Like all instruments the older the better and like us, the more we play the better we get.

G'day there Lawn and Aloha, hey man thanks for the uke underground web. Wow, never knew that existed. Oh it's great, but I also like to keep this going. I'm glad you like my uke, yes it's beautiful and plays like a dream. Trust me mate go for one of these, you won't be disappointed. Read your col. at the underground forum and noticed a few feedbacks for the Kanile'a, these guys are pretty good and very accurate. But what ever you decide my support will always be there to.
