I'm looking for feedback. Has anybody tuned their Fluke low G?

I have tried, it was ok. Honestly, I don't prefer low G on any uke.....then again, I am weird I guess.

Same here. It works fine, I just don't like the vibe of a low G when I'm playing chords. But the Fluke's large, resonant body works well with that lower pitch.

I tried it on my Flea, but I noticed that the plastic saddle has a small notch for the G string - Anybody have an idea what to do about that? I was nervous about filing it to be bigger. Maybe I just need a smaller gauge G string, but the flourocarbon G's are big. Let me know if it works!

HEy! I just became a full-fledged member on that last post, thanks, man!

Yeah. A couple years ago I had a tenor fluke I kept in Low G tuning. I actually had it in D tuning though, so Low A I guess :)

I thought it worked great! I can't remember what strings I used, but I remember liking it better in Low than high tuning.

My low G concert Fluke is my current go-to. It sounds good. I used a guitar classical d string for the low g, added to existing Aquila concert set.

My tenor Fluke is set up with low G Aquilazzz and I tune it a step down.
