    You might try taking a screwdriver or something similar (wrap the end with tape to cover the points) and putting that slightly inside the jack to hold it steady as you turn the nut from the outside....

    The D'Addario strings do not have any metal in them. They are "titanium" in name only. The only thing with those strings is that they are quite thick compared to a lot of others. I'm not sure how...

    I might feel a little odd about taking it in. That said, if you pay them for work on the instrument they are still making money.
    I'm sure you wouldn't be the first to do that. I would think it...

    Beautiful instrument! I really like the grain on that one and the gloss finish really makes it pop.

    I rarely use a strap, but I prefer headstock tie-on if I do. I like the balance and feel better.

    That's a really cool looking uke.
    It's also one of those that people not in the know wouldn't even think was a uke. It'd be one of those "What is that? mandolin maybe?" kinda things I think. I...

    I think it'd be helpful to know what your purpose is for it. Is it for display or are you looking for something to hold an ukulele in playing position as you play live? I'm thinking along the lines...

    I saw these on Musician's Friend a while back. I didn't try them though. For what it's worth, they use the same gauges as the D'addario carbon (fluorocarbon) strings....so not sure what, if any,...

    Just for the record, I don't recall ever breaking a string on any of them. I had the soprano, concert, and tenor versions at one time or another. For me, it was just a tuning thing but it was...

    Super Nylgut is the only Aquila I like. I personally like the sound, feel, and tuning stability of them (assuming the uke isn't a problem with the last one).
    Yeah, you probably should try...

    ^ A thousand members? Wow. I didn't know any uke group had that many people. Very cool!

    I didn't know these were made by the people who made Opio. So I learned something new.
