Shiny Ukes and Vintage Ukes

On this week's Live Lesson, a question about shiny spots on an ukulele lead the guys down a rabbit hole of vintage instruments. They discuss various vintage ukes, and share their "unicorn ukes" (or other rare instruments) that they would love to play. They swap a few stories about damaged instruments and wrap things up by talking about upcoming videos.
