    I would certainly re-string the uke if that's all it took... But, isn't it true that I would have to make adjustments to the saddle & nut as well? I can change strings all day long, but I don't...

    Thank you so much, Hollis!!!

    So, would it be safe to assume that a low-gauge set from Southcoast Ukes could be similar to, say, an extra long set of soprano fluorocarbon strings - assuming I use them on my tenor? I know I've...
