    Southern California Luthiers to fix frets, saddle, etc? (Long Beach or nearby)

    I would try raising the saddle. You can cut two business cards or a strip of credit card and place under the saddle to see if that helps. If it does and you want a more permanent solution you can ask a luthier to make a new saddle for you. Raising the saddle sometimes increases volume.

    What do you play when 1st asked

    UAS strikes hard... and what was your most recent irrational purchase?

    my recent irrational purchase was an Ameritage Gold Tenor case. I now have a great case with no uke to put inside... :D not the most well thought out plan.

    Fingerstyle uke

    I sometimes play my Otha-San which is a little longer scale than concert and shorter than tenor but because of the shape has a nice full sound. I think it makes the initial crazy chord stretches a little easier when figuring out the best chords to use

    Stinky toxic uke cases

    I had one case (not Kala or uke crazy, but i couldn’t tell the brand). I spent over a year trying everything to get rid of the horrible smell. Left outside, left open, baking soda, cedar blocks, febreeze everything! You name it, I tried it. finally just gave the case away. the last step...

    Why no fret #3 fret dots?

    It is awkward to transition but breaking bad habits is hard.
