Just saw your comment on my Instagram of my new uke. And, thought you might like to see some other photos of my safely-arrived Kala KA-GAC. I posted 'em in the thread where I originally found out about your shop.
I am really enjoying it, even after just over 24 hours.
Don't know what size it will be, but UkeFest Virginia, which is the same weekend as TBUG, might be an easier trip/better payoff for Mim's Ukes. Hard to say how many people will attend when it just starts out, but if you'll be there...more will show up.
Hi Mim, just wanted your set up thoughts if/when you have time. The ukulele I built used to have the action at the 12th fret right below 2mm, currently it's a smidge over 3mm and feels noticeable higher than before. I figure with the tension of the strings and time the neck might have settled in a little. Would you adjust at the nut or the saddle? My plan is to use a router on the bridge and deepen the slot for the saddle a tiny bit at a time until I'm satisfied with the action at the 12th again. Do you foresee any problem with that? I figure the absolute worst thing that could happen is I go too deep and have to make another saddle. Not a big deal. Thanks for your help,
Hi Mim! How was your cruise? You weren't on that one in Italy that went down, were you? I tried to send you a check to the address on the website, but it came back. Can you give me a viable address,please? Thanks
Thanks for the info on the elusive cigar box. Too bad. It seems like such a cool uke! I do want a cigar box at some point, but,aye this is a sign that it should in fact be handmade.
I think a peanut is probably in my near future, though... I have an Eleuke pineapple, second hand, but originally from you, and it's set up beautifully. The peanut is so cute.... I think it would be a perfect companion for the pineapple. They should write a comic strip about them! But, so, I'll let you know when I'm ready to pull the trigger.
