Uke players tend to be collectors, too. They see a certain uke, and develop a need for it. In truth, how many ukes do you need? I have a friend who has a beautiful hand-carved uke with a pineapple carved in the back. Wonderful sound. (Yes, someday you WILL be mine! YES you will!) So I head over to his house the other day, and what's he playing? A cheap $15 uke someone had painted with blue latex paint and glued Hawaiian flower stickers all over. Go figure, huh?
