    That is nice. I have a set of violin pegs I bought for a project many years ago and have never gotten around to using them. How are they for holding tune?

    Hi Pat. I'm planning a sound sample, but I want to do a bit of tweaking first. Turns out the action at the first fret is about 1mm too high. Planning to shave the nut later this morning.

    Thanks. It's not as warm as I expected (first time using WR Cedar). Hard to say otherwise, as I can hear the strings going slack as I play. I used the first 3 strings from an Oasis GPX+ Carbon...

    I love both guitar and uke. I'm not a virtuoso on either, but that's OK. I find performances like this inspiring. Evan de Silva on the uke is another inspiring young master.
