"When I picked it up I was attracted by its appearance –- it was an emasculated guitar! The sound was shit, but it was not important to me. It went very well with the straw hat I used to wear. It was never part of how I imagined my music and I watched in awe at how this ukulele troubadour image suddenly devoured the Jens Lekman I had planned so carefully. So I gave it away to a kid in Wisconsin...It's become another beardo instrument...If there's two things I will never do, it would be grow a beard and pick up the uke again." -Jens Lekman   [Idolator]
