Uke Got To Be Kidding

I have gotten a lot of requests for ukulele workshops. I just have to restring my resophonic uke – and that is a hellish process on these Recording King instruments. They seem to be designed by a tone-deaf sadistic psychopathic ass-clown who saved money by leaving out the tailpiece.

I literally have to disassemble the instrument to change the strings!


That said, I do like the way the instrument plays. We have had some wild adventures together. I was clutching this uke when I wandered into an airport runway (it’s a long story). I guess even badly designed instruments have good points.

Seriously, Recording King, a tailpiece is an easily stamped pit of metal. Why cut corners and make an otherwise great instrument as awful as Trump’s hair in a strong wind?
