    Martin Style 1 2017 Centennial Model

    I'm assuming based on price that this is being made in Mexico. From the spec sheet I really can't see much of a difference between it and the standard S1 except perhaps the lack of a headstock decal. Would appreciate any other information as to what might make this special.

    Recommendation for a Polyfoam case for long neck soprano

    I recently bought a long neck pineapple soprano and had a tough time finding a substantial case. I finally happened upon the Lanikai Polyfoam case at Sweetwater Music. It is your typical polyfoam case except it has enough head room (23") to fit a long neck soprano. What was also unique about the...

    Recommendation on strings for a concert resonator uke wanted

    I have a Gretsch Concert Resonator Uke. It came with Nylguts and wasn't a fan. I installed Worth BMs which are my go to strings and just don't care for their 'wimpy' sound. Would welcome other suggestions.

    Koa Pili KoKo Ukuleles

    Are they still in business? I bought a couple of their ukuleles a few years ago and was quite happy with the quality and price. There doesn't seem to have been much activity on the site (pilikoko.com) for a couple of years. They have a newer model I'd be interested in ordering but have not...

    High Tension Low-G strings for a Concert Uke

    Recently bought a Gretsch Resonator Concert Uke. I'm not a fan of the Nylguts it came with so I switched the strings out with Worth Medium Browns. It seems to need a higher tension to get the most out of the tone and volume. I tuned it up to A which is what it needed but would like a...

    Guitar Open Tunings on a Ukulele

    Being a big John Fahey fan and his playing being my primary motivation for taking up fingerstyle guitar playing in the mid-70s, I'd been working on a few of Fahey's tunes in standard tuning on the ukulele. Last week I had the pleasure of seeing Glenn Jones, one of Fahey's students and friends...

    8 String Ukulele Sets

    Just bought a Lanikai O-8 and am really enjoying the sound. It came with Nylguts of which I am not a big fan. I have settled on Worths and unwound G strings as my preferred set for my other ukes. It appears that the Worth 8 string set also has an unwound G. Anyone have an opinion on the Worths...
