    I can definitely see how that would be a huge help for someone like you who has to tune so many ukes on a regular basis. If I had to tune that many I'd most definitely want this gadget. Tuning that...

    Exactly. It's an important point to be made.

    I thought the guy who owned HMS was involved with Pono, or his family was at least. Hm. It seems they would've at least given you a lead. Maybe try a different person at HMS?

    Yes. For starters making a one piece hollowed out wood bridge/saddle combo would not be practical at all from a manufacturing standpoint. Furthermore, you couldn't adjust or replace and repair as...

    Thanks for the link Don.

    As Choirguy stated, there's a big difference between the original and the newer ones.

    Great point, Besley....and Rllink's post further illustrates this. I just disagree with the last part. I'd say it's still a setup, just not a personalized setup.

    No problem. It's the same design on both, just different scales and body sizes.
    It is certainly lighter and more portable than the tenor. If I go a while without playing a soprano I'm always...
