    Seems to be working for Kala, so I guess it makes sense on the surface. But look at Mr. Marreiros site: http://cornerstoneukes.com/

    How is anything coming from that shop in any way remotely tied...

    My understanding is that most of them are being made now with a normal side port on the upper left bout and the dog paw option is done on the upper right bout. So if you're a right handed player, it...

    Finally listened to this. Congrats!

    I agree with you the Rebel is probably the "redundant" one of the four.

    If you want to warm up the teardrop a litttle, I'd try some Livings Waters

    If you search for fifths tuning I'm sure there is more info here. I've never tried it, but I think you'd have an easier time getting CGDA (starting at C3) or DAEB (starting at D3) than GDAE

    I have them on one uke that I took in trade. I'm not buying the "enhances sound" argument. The only benefit to me is that it's a little easier to tie the knot and clip the end away from the uke. But...

    Guitar strings should work fine. With guitalele, normal tension nylon guitar strings yield ADGCEA tuning so I don't see why that wouldn't work just as well with steel string electric. You might have...

    eadGBE is also referred to as "Eddie Freeman Special" tuning - at least that's what Southcoast called it when they provided sets for it. I'm soon to put a variation of this on 17" guitalele - mine...

    My practice for the Flukutronic channel is to use a Zoom Q8 camera for video and (most) audio capture, but I post-process the audio in a DAW and then sync it back with the video in a video editor. I...

    No, no, I got it. I was just responding to why it might seem a little slow in selling. Absolutely worth more than the asking price. :shaka:

    Very cool design and sounds really good. The up octave tuning kinda ruins it for me as a true "bass" but getting that tuning in a tenor scale is a neat trick in its own right

    Have you tried just using a concert set? As long as they are long enough, the thinner gauges will give a lower tension.

    Living Water has a custom low tension set. Although I have the standard set...

    Really is a great opportunity. It's just that "only" and "$2000" aren't allowed in the same sentence for the vast majority of players. Still, as many people bid five times that at an MB auction,...

    The only similar story I have is with the Kala SLNG. I had bought one as a 'tide me over' uke while waiting on another I wanted more, probably the KPK, then sold it shortly thereafter. Then I got a...

    If your measurement is at the 12th fret, it seems to be about 4mm, which does seem rather high. On acoustic ukes I like to aim for 2.5mm, which would agree with your take the bridge down 1/8", but...

    How far off are we talking and how are you measuring it?
    What is the 12th fret action? (Intonation generally gets worse with higher action.)
    What are the strings and how are they...
