i got a ukulele the other day to try it out but when i hit the second string of the ukulele it seems to sound different,it sounds as if it were touching the frets. Happened like 2 days after i bought it. i using Aquila strings.
Do ukulele get neck adjustments like guitars?
Btw the ukulele is a KA-JTE/2ts

They can. Is it a "good" quality Uke? Many of the cheap Ukes are just thrown together in sweat shops somewhere in china I assume, and not allot of quality control there. So, if the frets are not level, you might have a fret or two higher than the others? That would cause a buzz.. Check the level of the frets.. If it is a quality instrument, take it back to the music store to have it adjusted..\\

That's an easy fix. I just had that problem with my Cordoba. A little double sided tape and cursing (fat hands, small hole) and it's all good now.
