I'm planning on doing some modifications on my Ukulele...

I'd love to get some help/info from you guys...

Right now i'm planning on getting Strap buttons on my Uke and sometime in the future, a pickup or maybe even an amplifier... Any suggestions?

I also need some motivation and help from those who have done these before. Maybe some instructions and supplies list you can tell me before I actually break my lovely uke...

On a wooden uke - strap button is a case of carefully drilling a pilot hole into the block at the base of the uke, then carefully screwing the peg on.

As for pickups - I fitted a pickup to a Fluke uke, so slightly different to a wooden uke - but the only real diff is where I drilled. For a wooden uke, you would go in through the same end block where a strap button would go (again, starting with pilot hole, then widening it)

My guide to fitting my pickup is here http://gotaukulele.blogspot.com/2010/10/fitting-k-big-shot-pickup-to-fluke.html
