    In my case, I had a bone saddle and I glued a strip of ebony to the bottom of it after sanding it down to the height I wanted. Worked like a charm to remove the buzz I was getting and had no negative...

    Ok, I have no business replying here but I will anyway. :p

    My advice would be not to use the wood from Chuck for your first build. Maybe try a kit or something first?

    Oh duh, "for sale". Thought I was missing some special kind of sale. :p

    I'm sure Rick will enjoy it. I'd consider ordering one, but they'd probably send fretted. :p

    Hmm, that's not without temptation. Have you tested it for function at least? Is it really 21" and not 20-3/8" like U-Bass? If I got it, I'd want to put flats on it and I'm not sure if the Kala...

    Hmm, I haven't actually tried it either, but even with a low G (G3), dropping an octave only gets you to G2 and guitar is E2. Bass guitar is E1. So your pedal would have to drop two octaves to get...

    Just not gonna find one. The biggest unwound string available is the low D baritone string from Living Water (or Worth) and it is passable on baritone. Dropping 3" of scale length and another step...

    Yes, but Makala is the lower level line. Nothing wrong with Kala if you buy from a dealer that does a proper setup. Where are you located?

    Just my opinion, but I would expect the typical 25-30% discount typical of used ukes, perhaps a little more with the repair which will reduce the value for many buyers. Again, just one opinion

    Are you open to having the C be reentrant? If so, that should be easy but you might have to widen the 3rd nut slot. I don't think you're going to get an unwound string on a tenor much lower than G....

    Do NOT put the steel strings on. If you did, take them off immediately.

    I find normal tension classicals just fine for standard ADGCEA tuning, but I agree it is personal preference
