Is there any reason why the distance/spacing between the 2nd and 3rd course so wide as compared to the other strings?

Good question. It could be that these were proto-types. I tried calling them today to get some more info & pricing, but no answer. I'll pose your question to them when I reach them.

The string thing was my question too. That would mess me up. But a very pretty uke none the less..

I took some pictures of these at the show. I noticed the string spacing was off on that one unit.

This were intersting ukes but the setup and finish work needed improvement. When they get this in order they will have a very cool product.
