check your image size when you upload to your computer. if its small, use a program to enlarge. best way to get it online, imo, is open a photobucket/flickr/any other image hosting website and then up load them to there and create an link/image link (where the image is veiwable from the forum)

That's a great headstock! Sorry about the ignorance of this question, but is that a new headstock fit to an existing ukulele (I didn't know you could do that) or is it a whole new uke? :confused:

The headstock looks great! I have a slotted headstock on my Ko'olau. I gather they're not easy to make because they tend to split during the making process.
