My first instrument was a ukulele, which was as common as dirt since Arthur Godfrey was all over the TV and plastic Maccaferri made ukuleles were sold by the millions for $2.00 in the early 1950s. Fast forward to 1971 in NYC and I took guitar lessons from the vaudevillian fret master Roy Smeck who had a special passion for ukulele and was one of the greatest uke players ever. So I’ve appreciated the ukulele for a long time and not just since they became popular in the last decade or so.
At Guitar Tex we sell a lot of ukuleles. So many that it’s a challenge to keep this page updated, but we try. Bear in mind that we are always getting new stuff in, so call or stop by and see what’s the latest.
