    Old thread, but I got a used one recently, so I'll add my $.02. All around a lovely uke, with excellent volume and a sweet tone. My only niggles are with the specs: 35mm nut width, and a very...

    Kamoa Pyro

    Saw this one on the Flea Market Music Marketplace site. A custom Kamoa tenor, which had a pyrography (wood burning) design added by the artist/owner.

    Speaking of wood matching on a stacked heel, I was looking at some old Kamaka concerts for sale online today, and saw these two from the 60s/70s. They didn't seem to care too much about appearance...

    1 5/16" nut? That equates to 33.34 mm, even skinnier than the T1k I had, which was 34.6 mm. Real purdy though, enjoy!

    Nice, what's the nut width and string spread there? Martin doesn't seem to list it on their site. Strangely, they list only fingerboard width at 12th fret, and string spacing at the bridge. ...

    I had no idea what that was until I Googled it: apparently a 3D printer. How would this help in making ukes, if that's part of the plan? A plastic Timms travel uke perhaps? If so, it sounds like...

    IME, you need at least a medium high level of craftsmanship to install Pegheds, without butchery. The tapered holes need to be perfect on both front and back. Obviously, if they're too small, they...

    Cool case, but I bet the light colored burlap would get dirty fast. Might be a candidate for a refinishing, like I used to do on tweed electric guitar cases. I'd use amber Bullseye shellac for an...

    That's sad to hear, as the rings for a strap were a great feature, I'm surprised they dropped that.

    Adventures in friction tuners

    Had a set of Ping tuners on my vintage Martin soprano. They were ok, held fine, but were a bit jerky, with some grinding. They were starting to get annoying. Then I got a set of frictions on eBay...

    Maybe Pono uses truss rods because their ukes (at least tenors I've seen) often have 1 or even 2 wound strings? Whether that's enough added tension to require a truss rod, I don't know.

    I've always thought the vintage Martin sopranos were THE ukulele. YMMV.

    If looking for a Kamaka, I'd prefer the HF-2 concert, just a bit more room on the fretboard, a slightly bigger body, and the...
