Ephemera: More Good Oldies


This '60s Canadian couple goes through the agonizing photo-while-folksinging process with a Gibson Hummingbird. Too bad it's the version with the ceramic saddle for the adjustable bridge. Pingpingpingslinkslinkchippachippa...

Local Flavor: Summer Solstice


We Wildwoods always have a bonfire for the solstice. The kids both got flower crowns but the wifey and I were foxes, as usual. We have a resident fox living up behind the shop who comes down to visit when the garden gets watered in the evenings -- so it's appropriate.

Back in the Shack: 1950s Vega Baritone Ukulele


The customer who owned this (a tenor guitar player) decided bari wasn't for him and so he traded it into me. I've enjoyed for a few weeks but I'm really a soprano uke guy (I don't own any other kinds, I have to admit), so it's a bit out of my wheelhouse. The bottom line is that this is an excellent baritone with a fan-braced top and crack-free, solid mahogany body. The neck is nice and quick, too -- and straight.
