This list was compiled by "1azarus" of whiteblaze.net

There are two threads going on this topic and this one with the Sticky did not have the most recent updates. So I copied the most recent update from the other thread to here to make this info easier for people to find. I also fixed a few links. All links work as of Sep 22, 2012.
I love this list! Thanks 1azarus

You're welcome. It's nice to have a list like this handy to do a quick check of something while here or at Whiteblaze. There are times I can't remember a name of a company and doing a google search interferes with my train of thought, etc etc :o Then If I go to WB I can't remember what forum it's in :roll: yes RR, it's called "oldtimers" :mrgreen:

I made it into a "sticky" thread so it will stay at the top.

Nice job, Dan. In your case it's not old timers but only half timers. You're still a young pup ;)

What part of "Cottage Industry" China do those come from? :shock: :lol:

I wouldn't be playing like that anyway..my concert size ukuleles sound more like this..and out in the woods this would be closer to what I would probably be playing ... :roll:

Better than me?.. :roll: I haven't played anything new here in a long,long time.. Most people I know don't believe I've only been playing about 1-1/2 years..but I have to keep a lot of instruments in tune,you know.. ;)

The video was meant to an inspiration to others so they would conside taking a lightweight instrument out into the woodlands. Gene Autrey had a nice geetar while he roamed the trails out West. Roy Rogers had one on his happy trails ;) Dale Evans used a ukelele :o

We're onto you. We know you make quality instruments for sale. :D

Well Cuz, I think she may have you in the vocal department. Zelph, I think if I were to take a lightweight instrument on a long hike, I might consider the harmonica; less weight and less space. ;)
