    If I could add one more thing: please clean your ukuleles before shipping. Nothing crazy, maybe just wipe it down. I mean, I usually clean any ukuleles I get, even if they're brand new, but I'm a...

    Thanks for that. When you say the saddle peak needs to go back, I don't understand. Do you mean the bridge and saddle are poorly positioned or that the saddle needs to be raised/lowered, or is it...

    At or around that price, some K brand ukuleles are better than some used customs. And some used customs are better than some K brands. Tough to say without something more specific. I don't think...

    Intonation Question

    Whenever I hear about intonation issues from other people, it seems like the problem gets worse moving up the fretboard and is more/most pronounced at the 12th fret or so.

    But my own experience is...

    I'm partial to mango. With spalted mango especially, it's hit or miss visually. I don't think there's a tonal difference between spalted and regular mango.

    The Waterman concert is better than the soprano, though still not great. But if you go with a Waterman, your best bet is to try it out beforehand. I've played one with intonation issues and another...

    I did a little digging, and apparently they're a bigger store, not a mom and pop shop. I ask because I'm considering ordering from them outside of Reverb (they have a site). As Jerry mentioned, their...

    Miki Gakki?

    This is kind of a long shot, I think, but has anybody heard of or dealt with a music store called Miki Gakki out in Osaka, Japan? I'm considering ordering a ukulele from them, but thought I'd see if...

    I've been researching Rebels a bit and came across some of your posts and video reviews. Looking at your list of ukes, I don't see any Rebels. Do you still have the Double Creme or is that gone?

    Has anybody had any experience with New Traditions ukuleles? I came across their website and saw that they had some very reasonably priced luthier-made ukuleles on sale. They seem to only have tenors...

    Mango and Koa Combinations?
