    WTS: 4 Ukuleles

    WTS: 2 Ukuleles Why I'm selling: Last Fall I broke my wrist. Several bones in my hand were also moved out of place (this had something to do with an old hand injury). I didn't get the cast off until mid-January, then I was in physical therapy until it was cancelled because of Covid-19. I was...

    GoldTone BUC - any advice?

    My GoldTone BUC arrived today. What do folks think of the stock strings that come with it? They feel really stiff to me (I'm used to Worth). Has anyone changed them? Any advice to get the best sound out of it? thanks in advance!

    Opio Spruce Top Tenor

    I bought this Opio Spruce Top Tenor from Mim in April of this year (2019). I absolutely love the sound, but I just can't get comfortable with the fretboard. My fingers require a concert-size fretboard. Trades considered: Opio concert (spruce top or all acacia) with a little cash on your end...

    Open G string buzzing - how to fix?

    I very recently bought a used Koaloha concert uke (2012). It had been sitting in storage for several years. I put a new set of Worth strings on it, and it sounds great except for buzzing from the open G string. Notes going up the string sound fine. It's a high G now. While it sat in storage it...
