You have some very interesting items on your web site. Welcome to the forums. I hope you look around and participate. We have a section of the forums called "Seasons", it's under the Contests heading. People post videos of themselves playing their ukes on a weekly topic there. I bet you would impress lots of folks with mando-ukes and bouzouki's etc.

You have anything that tunes like a baritone uke? DGBE.

John - Thanks for the info. I had hours of pleasure going through the different forums, and yes I will start practicing hard so I can get a video together. at the moment I am playing a tenor tuned in 5ths because that is what I am used to. but hope to switch soon, I found the ukulele lessons very helpful.

CB56 - I have one under construction, It has a bouzouki size body, but with a Ukulele fan braced top, scale is 20.25" and it will be tuned DGBE or in 5th GDAE (with Nylon strings), I can send you some photos when it is complete.

Is that the guitar strummer?
Will the pricing be similar to the other strummers? Standard, uke etc....?

CB56 - Sorry misunderstood.
The Guitar Strummer is tuned the same as the Baritone DGBE but has a longer scale 22.5"
I can go shorter but the strings will be a little heavier, the price is $20 more $310 which includes shipping.
