    I think you've mainly proved that it's the playing, not the ukulele that counts. You could probably make a Waterman sound--decent.

    That's a beautiful little uke.

    What's that mean, carbon fiber polycarbonate? Why is it better, and how does its use affect sound? Not because I want to buy one, just curious.

    I'm closing out the thread. I'll either keep it, try again after tax season, or sell it on eBay.

    I just discovered that they make a concert version, too. It has a cutaway, slotted headstock, and side port. Also, the saddle is removable, in case the action is high.

    I'm not saying I don't like it, just wondering about the reasoning. I'd like the extra space for picking. But if Sam likes it, that's a ringing endorsement.

    I was wondering the same thing. I'm sure they can be made without that, though.

    I do like people who geek out on measuring things. Thanks to this board I now have a caliper--and, of course, wish it were a better model.

    I have it on my TT which is strung with Aquila Red soprano strings. The tension feels similar to the red soprano wound string it replaced. So probably medium to low.
