Set aside an hour to spend 60 minutes in heaven with this wonderful documentary of Elderly Instruments. When I was a student at Michigan State, they were located on Grand River Ave., just across from campus. This is where I bought my first uke (a $19 Hohner soprano that I still play almost daily). But I still haven't forgiven them for letting me buy the Hohner over an $85 mint Gibson Style 3. Link
