BRISTOL — After a day of luaus and roving through Hawaii’s scenic vistas, Jim and Jennifer Vyhnak ducked into the first place they saw with air conditioning: Scotty’s Music shop in Kalaheo, Hawaii. Not only did the shop have air conditioning, but hanging just beyond the door were walls of peculiar-looking instruments. The shop owner immediately plucked one of the “miniature guitars” off the wall and handed it to the couple.
“Almost every tourist gets a ukulele,” she told Jim. “But few ever actually play it.”
