    We "talked story" and laughed remembering you yesterday at HMS. You are missed.

    It's been awhile since you've gone, but I wanted to stop in tell you a few things...

    UU is at the same time a lesser and greater place without you. Lesser in that your wisdom and wit are no longer to be showered upon us. Greater in that, as a forum, we pulled together, wept together, and showed our love as one when you left us.

    Every time I sign into youtube, I remember your reviews you put there, and I can also remember the riff you played on the ukes nearly to the note. These will be a living testament to you always.

    Thanks to you for being around for us as long as you were. You've gone to a better place where you will always be well.

    Thank you Mike, for all the Reno Ukulele Festival video's you take the time to film!

    It's really thoughtful of you, to post these video's for those of us who can't go. Thank you again!...

    Wow! I used to work at Mills Music in El Cerrito with Al Dodge. We used to hang out at MW all the time, I think we must have moved some pianos into his lesson rooms. Man... I miss the Bay Area...

    Mike, I may have been measuring wrong. I did not measure from the fret itself but from the fretboard. Anyway, I took pics and sent you the link. Please take a look and if you think there is a problem, let me know. Sorry for the confusion.--- thanks

    Mike, here are some better measurements on the Islander. at the nut I am getting 3 mm and at the 12th fret I get 4 mm. I find this to be high and fairly painful at first fret when trying to get a clean chord

    Hello Mike, the height of the strings on the 12th fret is .25 inches. I am not sure how that stacks up but the biggest problem I have is the height of the strings at the first fret especially. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Thanks Ed

    Aloha Mike, I purchased an Islander MT-4 the other day from a UU member who said he got it from HMS. He told me that he shipped it out to me the same day it arrived from HMS in the same box. I believe this is true because it did come to me in a box from HMS and the shipping labels all seem to corroborate this. My problem is that the action is so high that I feel that it kills my fingers just to play it and I can't get the B chords sounding good at all. I am not a noob to ukulele so I pretty much know about how it should feel. I have owned 11 ukes and have purchased two previous from HMS. I have never had this problem with a set-up uke before but this one definitely is high. I know I am not the original purchaser but is there anything that can be done. I have had this uke less than 24 hours. If this helps, the serial number is 1086343 and I purchased it from a UU member named Chris Conerby in Ohio.
