    Hold the phone! I figured out what the issue was. It is not a “touch” type button that powers it, but an actual “click” type. That required me to get my finger nail in there. Seems to be working...

    Lanikai SOT-6EK Tuner question

    Hi, all...
    I was about to pull the trigger on this baby when I noticed the rather funky tuners. Why the nylon shaft in the open headstock? They are also of a much larger diameter than any of my...

    Your pondering about the OU2P are right on the money.
    It's rich, mellow, full sound makes it one of my best players. And yes, at $67 it's a steal!
