    I'm looking for a spruce/acacia tenor.

    Forgot to mention that I needed to have the nut groove filed down to be able to play a b minor comfortably. The uke is on the heavier side also.

    I'm looking for a spruce/acacia tenor.

    How about a spruce /koa tenor made in Hawaii for $475? I bought #225 from a UU member 5 years ago and still use it as my workhorse uke. I don't think it is custom made as some state though.

    Metal, Wound C String

    I've used Thomastik C and G wound strings as well as Oasis smooth wound G without much squeaking or noise. Other wound strings I've used have been noisy especially when sliding up strings. Agree with Taro that the Thomastik C and G wound strings work well with fluorocarbons; Chuck Moore uses...

    mylar plastic fingernail/pick guard?

    Has anyone used a self adhesive clear mylar plastic as a fingernail/pick guard on their ukulele? Did you like the results? Has anyone removed one of these? Any experience would be welcomed, as I am debating whether or not to install one that was given to me by the uke maker.
