Here's the before & after shots. This is the traditional soprano pineapple 'ukulele appearance I prefer. Just thought I'd post these for any UUers thinking of similar mods.

looks nice :)

i've thinking of changing the knobs on my jazz tenor too but can't seem to find small enough knobs ... where did you get those from?

I feel dumb because it took me a while to noticed that you had switched the knobs out. Looks pretty good!

Thanks! The volume/tone knobs could be a bit smaller. The cheapo friction tuners work just fine. Reduction in weight is significant.

Q-Parts (http://www.qparts.com/) sells a mini knob.

I bought a set of mini domed silver natuaral abalone for my Eleuke SL-Koa...

I appreciate the compliment! The color match was the idea, and I got lucky, having acquired the tuners and knobs from different sources. I'd like the knobs a bit smaller, but I'll live with it.

Nice. Last time I tried to mod an instrument.. well now my electric guitar doesn't work. Good job not breaking your eleuke, :)
