    For Sale / Trade Collings Tenor Ukulele with highly Figured Mahogany

    I agree, play it! And btw it’s “Bill Collings”. The story goes that if he was unhappy with a guitar or mando or uke for any reason, he wound cut it in half with a bandsaw. Now that’s quality control! Cheers!

    I have an old '70's Stella Harmony 12 string. I want to put new strings on it and maybe learn a few chords with the intention of selling it.

    Try light gauge 12 string set of your favorite brand can’t go wrong with DAddario phosphor bronze, and make sure you tune it down a whole step to D.

    Went to get the trash cans in the sleeting snow and there's a ukulele shaped box sitting on my porch frozen to the ground.

    You’re lucky… could have really gotten ugly! That’s one of the reasons that whenever I ship a uke or guitar I always wrap the entire case in a sealed heavy duty trash bag before packing it in the over padded shipping box.

    Brilliant! Just what I need to repair my Pohaku that suffered an unfortunate ‘I forgot to close the case’ injury resulting in a popped off bridge. Cheers!

    Bridge positioning & Gluing?

    All of the StewMac clamps are too big for a soprano…any suggestions from you builders out there? I have a Pohaku sop that needs the bridge reglued. I’m looking to buy, not make clamps.

    Hang in there Jon…I’ve been through some s** myself over the past 2 1/2 years and eventually things will improve, just give it enough time.
