By that time, I was thoroughly hooked on ukuleles and didn't want the distraction.
I hack away at it; I have since I was 14, back when the Beatles were still new.
I got the impression ukuleles weren't treated as "serious" instruments, not serious enough for either store to have a tuned one on hand at least.
And certainly not serious for anyone to want to take more of my money for one. I spent hours surfing uke-related forums, blogs and websites, trying to match my growing interests with my limited budget, trying to understand everything about ukulele brands, woods, strings, sizes and finishes, reading reviews and comparisons. I also spent time on You Tube and similar sites looking at the brilliant new performers - like Jake Shimabukuro and Mike Okouchi and Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Brittni Paiva, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and others - musicians who have returned the uke from a novelty into a serious musical instrument for a new generation, and in turn helped spawn the ukulele renaissance.
Last Spring, Susan gave me a beautiful blue Takamine 540C. Blue because of my affinity for Wallace Stevens' famous poem. In the intervening month or so between order and arrival, I decided I could learn some ukulele because I read they're tuned similarly.
I later bought an electric guitar, an American-made Stratocaster clone. Besides, I had been brought up listening to George Formby on the banjo ukulele (or banjolele), and a bit of Cliff Edwards, so it was in my blood, more or less.
Nylon strings don't lend themselves well to certain styles.
