In the near future...

There are tons of ukes on their way to the workshop for "processing."

This includes a rare 30s Harmony Vita uke, two 20s Hawaiian-made koa soprano ukes, and several mahogany ukes -- two sopranos from the 20s-30s and one concert from the 60s. Topping the uke fest off is an "original model" Lyon & Healy Camp Uke with the no-soundhole, banjo-style rear resonator design, all in solid monkeypod wood.

So, ukers, keep an eye out. Fun stuff! And as for other instruments? Yes, more fun stuff.

'Camp' was used for the cheaper and later Gretsch models, but those L&H 'round ones' really are good. There are some versions (flat back/domed back, straight bridge/smiley bridge).

Oh, and a vita uke as well? I've got one with a 'black cloud' headstock decal,...
