    I've got wooden tapered pegs on a couple of my sopranos. They work fine, but do require patience and finesse to get it just right. There's no doubt about it - friction pegs and geared tuners are...

    A search turned up a reference to Augusto Cezar Ribeiro. He was said to be a master craftsman, a maker of fine furniture, working in the middle of the 19th century.

    Interesting looking uke. How was the deep, curve (front and back) achieved? Was it carved from the solid?

    "Can it be said that you your chances of finding a $250 uke that sounds like $1000 uke are better than finding a $1000 uke that sounds like a $250 uke?"

    It can be said, but it would be untrue.

    The answer is that it should sound better, but it might not. In most comparisons it can reasonably be...

    One of my favourite songs, to strum and sing, is "I'm Through With Love". As I play it, it starts with FMaj7.

    The supposition is that the extended fretboard will affect the way the sound board vibrates. It will, of course, but whether that has a significant effect is open to question. Certainly not a "night...

    I love the Major7 chords, no substitute sounds right to me. It's worth finding a way to play the full chord. I can't do FM7 - 2, 4, 1, 3 (gawd knows, I've tried) 5500 does it.

    The presence of an extended fretboard should not make a "night and day" difference. If the difference in sound is so great, there must be some other factor at work.

    Am = CEA

    FM7 = AEFC

    I've heard it said that Am makes an effective substitute for FM7, but it just sounds wrong to me. The addition of that 'F' makes a huge difference.
