From time to time some folks here express interest in a steel string uke. Personally I don't see the attraction, BUT, if you are so afflicted, I just got a note from Stew Mac about a sale on their mini guitar kits for $140. Now it's a guitar kit, so of course it comes rigged for six strings. But it would be a simple matter to give it a new nut and file new slots in the existing saddles to set it up for just four strings. Scale length is given as 16.3", so it would be almost a tenor size. Anyway, could be a fun project, and knowing Stew Mac quality the final result should be pretty good.
