    Using calipers to measure, the nut on my TT6 is 49.41mm. I'm guessing they all vary a wee bit but wider is always better for me. The Kanile'a GL6 can be ordered with a radius if you do a custom...

    Yes, according to HMS specs, the Pono guilele is 1.75" or 44.5mm. Kanile'a's Islander GL6 has a 50mm nut albeit no radius. The GL6 has the most comfortable guilele fingerboard I've played.

    The Pono kiku is too narrow for me—unplayable. The Romero Creations Baritone 6 is 49mm at the nut and has a mild radius. Sounds pretty dad burn decent too.

    Or use a longer screw. But, yeah, I've tapped in toothpicks many many times to tighten up striped screw holes and it works great.

    Early this year my 2019 Kanile'a GL6 came with a ABS hardshell case. The prior year they had a molded foam case covered with fabric—sorta a rigid gig bag style.

    Are those the pink tinted ones? I wonder if they're derived from the Seaguar Pink leader?

    Use of Seaguar Pink on my Kremona Coco (cedar/rosewood) mellowed it out nicely. Worth Browns and Aquila Nylgut were too bright.

    I briefly owned the Fishman Loudbox Mini and hated it: quacky and unnatural to my ears and not enough controls to dial in a nice tone. I suspect the Mini is optimized for steel-string tone and just...

    That's due to the three braces on the back—acts sorta like a secondary soundboard. Play a chord or note with the ST on you gut and immediately lift it off your gut and you'll hear the volume suddenly...

    Oddly, Minnesota is supposedly where many of my ancestors lived before heading to Oregon, so maybe there was some cosmetic pull. Most of my instruments are from Asia and Europe with a couple customs...

    That's interesting the ukulele is attractive to older folk on the mainland. Here in Hawaii the ukulele is played by pretty much all ages from elementary school kids to retired seniors. It's not...

    If stored in a dark, cool dry place in well designed packaging, they have a storage life of many years. I still have D'Addario strings left from our shop that are over a decade old and they still...

    I have noticed that trend on the mainland. Hawaii ukulele players tend to be a bit more technical and are often the soloist in club bands, doing the job of the lead guitarist with fills and burning...

    That group thing seems to be a mainland thing and is rare here in the islands. But then the ukulele is more integrated into the overall culture of Hawaii and is omnipresent to say the least.

    I have a Takamine tenor, GUT-1 I think. Nice clean ply build, handsome, true frets and a spacious neck for those used to classical guitars. Plenty of volume but a rather dull and uninspiring voice....

    You need to be bulletproof to thrive in this non-PC and highly ethnocentric world. Otherwise you'd be offended every two seconds or so. Nothing much fazes me anymore. However, it sure is an ugly and...

    Maybe use the rear pickup for chords, strum closer to the bridge and/or program a patch with brighter EQ on your stomp board?

    One nice thing about a guilele/kiku is you can choose to ignore the lower D and A and only play the G C E A strings. However—although you don't touch the lower D and A—their harmonics ring with...

    You might look into small keyboard amps as well. They're more like a mini-PA—woofer and tweeters—since they need to handle 7 octaves and often have an XLR input for a preamp/DI.
