Here's my tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpDO3s30BzA)on how to restring an ukulele with a bridge that is strung through the body. It's really Part II of my review of Waverly Street Ukuleles.

I affectionately call the video "Watching Paint Dry." Enjoy! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpDO3s30BzA);)

That was great :biglaugh:

You probably don't want to hear this, but one of the things I've been thinking about doing is making my saddles "reversible". Yours, being for low-g, is cut with a single long crown on the top. Now that you've gone re-entrant, it really ought to shift forward at the 4th string, as explained here: http://www.wsukes.com/saddle.html

On the other hand, if it sounds good, well, you know, don't fix it if it ain't broke & all that.

You know much more about it than I, for which I am glad since I own one of your great instruments!

They definitely look and sound great and I think they're underpriced. Although I shouldn't say that until after I buy a couple.
