    Strings for Mainland Tenor?

    I've been reading "strings" posts and discovered that there are some who have stated that Aquila's were not their favorite for solid wood ukes.

    Convert a Tenor Uke to a Lapstee/Weissenbornl?

    Convert a Tenor to Lapsteel? I have a tenor uke with high action that I have been playing with a bottleneck slide. It currently is strung with a set of Koolau Alohi's (low G, wrapped pair). I dropped the high A down to a G. Was thinking I would like to convert it to a 4 string...

    Do Uke's ever need a neck rest? (Neck angle questions)

    Just bought my first Ukulele used here on the Forum. Seemed like the action was a little high so I emailed the Distributer to find out what factory spec should be. Guitar player for years, I am used to action of 4/64 to 6/64 at the 12th fret (normal factory spec for most acoustic guitar...
