    Bellgamin, I apologize. I did not visit the video to which you posted a link (I am reluctant to click on links if I don't know what they are) but now I have. If I had seen it before, I could have...

    Bellgamin, It is a false equivalence to compare truss rods with air bags in cars. You might as well include parachutes in your argument. Using your logic, we should all be wearing safety shoes. The...

    This thread has now been rumbling on for six days. It has developed into a discussion about why ukuleles do not have truss rods, yet the OP has not yet told us if the neck really has bowed - highly...

    Welcome to the forum, Dartmouthbrain. So, you want the perfect soprano, do you? If I had to choose just one uke, there are many basic, solid mahogany sopranos that would fit the bill perfectly. As...

    It seems unlikely that the neck suddenly bowed when you changed the strings. The person who suggested that seemed not to know much about ukuleles. You can settle the issue by placing a straight edge...

    I wish people would stop referring to slight distortion in the soundboard of a ukulele as a problem. It isn't. I have a sixty year old Martin style 1, and a ninety-two year old Gibson. Both are...

    "why make such a show of your displeasure? What do you hope to gain?"

    Thanks for that, WS64. It took me right back to the early 1960s, enjoying the Modern Jazz Quartet in concert in Manchester, England.
