While I met Moku Ukulele’s big Kahuna Mike Mulqueen at a recent Wine Country Ukulele Festival in Napa, California, somehow we didn’t get around to splitting a bottle of cabernet. We did, however, talk a lot about ukes. He loves them, and with Moku, he wanted to take his ideas and know-how from his shop in San Francisco to overseas manufacturers so he could offer a bounty of soprano, concert, and tenor ukuleles spec’d out with attractive features at reasonable prices.
