View Full Version : WTB Vintage wood tuners and fretwire

10-10-2008, 07:19 AM
I have recently restored a Kumalae soprano uke and am looking for vintage wooden tuners and some vintage fretwire for the 12th fret, which is missing. I'm presently using whittled rosewood violin pegs. Also, I can't find any old fretwire for the 12th fret, the straight kind without a crown. I believe that it is brass but it may also be nickel. If anyone has some very old fretwire from a refret and/or wooden ukulele tuning pegs from the 1920's or 1930's, please email me.

The fretwire may be mandolin fretwire. Contact Gruhn's in Nashville. They should be able to help you get what you need. Google them.
