    FS Teton Solidbody Concert Electric

    I purchased this Teton a few years back from Mim. Sounds great and looks great; just doesn't get played, so I am going to thin the herd. There are some minor scratches on the plastic cover of the electronics on the back and on the bridge. Glad to send more pics and/or sound sample upon...

    End Pin Plug on Baritone Problem

    I am trying to install a K&K pickup on a '50s baritone. I have the hold drilled for the endpin plug, but it appears the block is too thick for the plug's length. Any suggestions other than moving the plug or reminding me I should have had a luthier do this:confused:?

    U-bass tuners

    It seems that several folks have had problems with the tuning machines on the Spruce u-bass. Mine are already sticking. Has anyone tried to convert the stock machines to the Hipshot Ultralights that are used on the high-end u-basses? If so, is any modification needed?

    Selling my aNueNue Banjo Uke. It's essentially like new. I'm selling only 'cause I found a great deal on a Beansprout and don't need 2 good banjo ukes. Great sound and volume. The figure on the resonator is beautiful. The case still smells new inside! The only issue may be some very light...

    Boat Paddle owners, unite!

    I just picked up my BP M-style, directly from Jerry's hands in New Haven, Missouri! It's a spruce-top with walnut sides and back and maple neck. The action is wonderful, the tone is bright and crisp, and the volume is amazing! Anyone interested in starting a UU Boat Paddle group?
