    You may need to get the frets leveled. A truss rod is used to adjust neck relief in the middle of the neck, i.e., around the 7th fret, and doesn't make much difference on the first few frets.

    Much of Nicolas de Angelis recordings appear to be easy listening pop music played on nylon string guitar, rather than classical guitar music. You might find lead sheet and/or piano arrangements and...

    I've used D'addario capos for years and there are no marks on any of my instruments, but I always remove after playing. I suspect Ms Bean is right about the UV exposure causing gradual darkening of...

    One thing about the Romero Replica tenor design is it has "reverse fan bracing" on the back, thereby causing the back to act as a secondary soundboard. If you hold the back against your belly, you...

    Yes, some heavy rain here on Oahu the past couple days. Sad to see that area of Haleiwa flooding. A grand pain for all involved. Looks like the Ukulele Site retail store avoided the worse of it.

    I've played both in various tone woods and have to say the biggest difference in sound revolved around the wood combinations rather than the body style. I preferred the all mahogany grand tenor over...

    Intonation problems are most pronounced in the upper positions. If you don't use the low G above the 7th fret you probably won't notice if intonation is a wee bit off.

    I've seen older Kanile’a with unstained rosewood fingerboards, resulting in a lighter brown hue. The new Oha series have brown fingerboards as well.

    Most early guitars—Renaissance and Baroque—were strung reentrant. And strumming was rasgueado using multiple fingers in both down and up strokes.

    I can't answer your question directly but, heck, you can multi-track on an iPad with GargageBand, so audio recording isn't that demanding of a modern computer just as long you're not mixing more than...

    If I already had an instrument or two with a pickup, I'd pass. It's extra clutter and might rattle when played acoustically. Of course if you mainly play amped up or are a pedalboard junkie, you'll...
