    I'm still confused what you're really after. So you want a linear tuning but don't like low G GCEA? If you just swap the bottom two strings, you won't have a linear tuning and none of your chord...

    sure, it's possible, but why? :confused:

    Did you mean CGDA, i.e. fifths tuning?

    Now that looks different. I have Native American flutes with turquoise filled voids but have never seen that on a uke. :cool:

    The first question to answer is what goals are most important to you - tone, playability, aesthetics, etc. I know you say this is a "once in a lifetime" thing so your temptation is to say, "well,...

    I agree, though the spalted sycamore to its right looks to be striking as well. I'm sure the walnut and ash will turn out classy, but yeah, I like mine better.

    Very nice. The tonal range from that Kinnard and that string set is amazing. Very warm lows and yet very sparkly highs without being harsh. :cheers:

    I move things around with Dropbox a lot.

    If you want to stick with PC there are some free/cheap(ish) tools you could try. Windows Movie Maker might even be enough for this task on the video side....

    The general rule is that if you put a set designed for 17" scale on a 19-20" scale instrument, plan to tune down 2 or 3 semitones so you'll be in same tension range. I did this with the 133C set...

    In a nutshell, what I do for this is extract the audio from the video and pull it into a DAW. Then add my other tracks in the DAW, mix, add effects, whatever. Then take the mixdown and splice that...

    The 153C set is for E tuning on 17" scale. This would likely be very high tension on 20" scale. You could likely do D tuning or even C# on the longer scale with similar tension. But that wouldn't...

    I think you nailed it with the "completed unit" - I think all of these could look good depending on the rest of the elements. This uke, er guitar, will not be lacking for color components in any case.
