Tonante 400 brazilian cavaco cavaquinho at Ukulele Corner
12 seconds later and I would have!
I had been watching this on ebay well I'd bid on it and been outbid then a day and a half before the auction ended I bid again but with a couple of minutes of this bid someone outbid me again; so someone else was watching! I would have to do one of those last second snipes ans since my snipe site had shut down I would have to do it manually. I logged on and was all set with 15 minutes to go but as there was 15 minutes I started pissballing about and almost forgot!! Like I say I went back with 12 seconds left, hit bid and was just in time with no one having the chance to outbid me so the invitation was accepted. Now an electro acoustic Tonante 400 Brazilian Cavaquinho is coming to Ukulele Corner

It's Here!!

And its without doubt, (not that I had any) a Brazilian Cavaquinho even if it currently has nylon Ukulele strings. Fat body, narrow neck, zero fret and most tellingly "made in Brazil" on the sound hole label. It doesn't sound right with nylon strings though so I'll have to dig out a set of Steel Strings and set it right.
