    Congratulations on your new uke!

    I finally had a chance to try a LoPrinzi, and now have UAS more than ever. (In case anyone has a concert they'd like to sell, please see my post in the marketplace.)

    But, the one I tried had mild buzzing, too, (OK if played very lightly, though), and also had intonation problems on the A string. Is the intonation OK on yours?

    I love, love the neck, though, and overall really liked the one I tried, if it wasn't for the intonation problem and slight buzzing if not played lightly. I wonder if this one was also modified. I had that thought while looking at it, and now your post really makes me think that is probably what happened.

    Congratulations Ukecaster! I am afraid I would be in the same situation as Joyful Uke if I was able to get a Loprinzi in my hands to try out.

    Cheers and a good weekend to all,

    Steve.

    Did a short video playing the LoPrinzi tenor, which has a wonderfully sweet tone and great volume. I thought the thin neck was gonna cramp my hand bigtime, but so far, it's been no problem. The super low action was also strange at first (between 1.5 and 1.75mm at 12th), but we'll see on that, as the buzzing seems to have subsided.

    Sounds like it has good tone and volume.
    That certainly didn't cure my UAS. :-)

    Enjoy that great ukulele.
