    I have a Blue Star Konablaster by Bruce Herron but he is at least semi-retired now. If you go on Etsy and search for electric ukulele, there are lots of builders.

    I recently changed strings on a guitalele from stock to much thinner strings and got a buzz on the 5th and 6th strings. What I did was cut a small length of string and put that in the nut slot under...
