Damn, that's a good looking uke. I had to hold my breath with the snippers above the sound board. ;-)

I did too! Glad he ain't no klutz like me. I once dropped a wrench on the new paint job of the front fender of my Hog. Dammit!
Thanks for the video Beau. I had to figure this out for myself, to get rid of a set of strings I hated on a new uke.
I won't ever buy another uke without this type of bridge!

I glue something inside that acts as a bead so you don't have to use a bead.

Same here. Then I know the knot is secure and has a large surface area when it pulls against the top.
