I've been jamming on my Islander MST-4 for quite some time now. I enjoy playing it very much. Unfortunately, it's sound gets drowned out whenever I'm playing with others, since there is pickup. I asked GC if they could do an installation. They said they could, but the installation would be 70 to 100 dollars, and the pickup is 60 to 90 dollars on top of that. This seems like a ridiculously high price to just amp up a ukulele. Would you still pay this much? It seems like a frightening idea to attempt this installation myself. I don't like drilling into 300 dollar instruments. Any thoughts are appreciated! Merry Christmas!
