Kiwi, my daughter declared a John Morton concert resonator uke a family heirloom, but it's down the road somewhere.... they get what they get dammit! :lol: The only heirloom would be the custom "Patricia" uke. Named after my mom.

Yes I agree. I was trying to suppress that thought a being a little mean!
My wife Jenny refuses to let me sell my Bushman Jenny uke so we've got more in common than you'd think. :roll: :lol: :?

These "iconic blues guitars" -- are they still for sale? Are we talking about L-00s, or the like?

No Gibsons in this bunch but a couple of Kay Krafts and a Kalamazoo. Sorry sold 'em all in one deal.

Now and again I decide I might get rid of it but it's one of my possessions which says to me "No I'm a one off, I sound so good you'll regret selling me for sure"

Or you'll sell it and get another one. :lol:


My daughter (29) declared the John Morton resonator uke a family heirloom too.

.... way too bad for her! Gone, gone gone. Although, she also declared my '37 Martin 00 an heirloom, and I have no reason to doubt her on that.
