    ALSO - was just plinking on my jupiter creek solid body electric bari uke, and the single (neck) pickup on that is slightly higher on the bass side, and that uke is totally the cat's pyjamas, and very very nicely set up, so i think it's all good with the clearwater

    Thanks Lynda!

    Definitely changing it to Low G ASAP, I need it for the sort of songs I wanna play on it

    That's a relief on the pickup, and what you say definitely makes sense.

    It's weird. I used to need a pick all the time when I used to play electric guitar, a few years fingerpicking/strumming on the uke has meant that a pick on this feels a bit clumsy now.

    I'll post a picture of the action later and compare it to my other ukes I think. It does seem pretty low, but there's no fret buzz I've noticed.

    Edit: just posted a vid on Keith's season. At the start and end I do some fingerpicking on the two high strings and I don't get much of a sound out of it. Strumming is fine though. I set it to the bridge pickup but keep strumming over the neck one as I would on a normal uke. May have to try strumming/picking over the bridge pickup for a more even sound.

    You know I love electric uke, Ryan. I look forward to hearing your thoughts as you keep using this uke. I don’t have a steel string uke, but if/when I get another uke, I’ll probably get a steel string.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    Just posted a brief review on Keith's thread if you're interested.

    Spoiler: definitely something up with the pickups.

    I haven't done much with my steel stringed uke (soprano konablaster) other than shielding it and having the nut cut and a low G installed. And so it sits at my shop in a flea case. When I first bought it after much tweaking of the presets on my guitar pedal earlier to get a good sound with nylon strings the steel strings and magnetic pickup just sound dead or perhaps better put compressed. Standard guitar presets sounded fine.

    A few guys over the years when switching from nylon to steel recommend using aLaska Piks. http://www.alaskapik.com/
