    Watch out these strings are REALLY far apart. I had one for a short while but it had other defects as well so I sent it back. Something like an islander with a 1.5 nut should be fine.

    Now that I remember, the yamaha gl1.
    For full sized guitars 52mm is pretty standard. I wish my original mini was 52mm but I don't think anyone does non full sized with that width. And I still...

    The narrower nut pretty much makes this just another run of the mill mini guitar. The wider nut makes the original mini almost tolerable. The price point and (hopefully) quality should make this a...

    Chop it yourself then spend the savings on hats. That sounds like a solid plan. Hair is overrated (although mine is fairly thick).

    I just saw a used giannini in a local store, with a broken wound string. Action on the high side, as are the nut slots. They have it listed at 150 but I was wondering what I should try to offer for...

    Another one for the cordoba mini. Great little guitar even though I really can't play it. My oldest daughter has some.

    A big reason why its 50usd is because the intonation is a crap shoot. The cheapest guaranteed good intonation ukulele you'll find is a flea.

    The flea/fluke is more of a normal type ukulele that is a bit more durable than most other ukuleles with a cool builtin stand.
    The OU is for more extreme uses that should just last.

    I far prefer Tony Mizen's classical books over that John King one. The Baroque and Romantic versions have very recognizable pieces in them.

    In my experience anyone playing a fretted ubass with a typical piezo bridge shouldn't expect great intonation. Without having adjustable saddles it's just the nature of the beast. That's why I...

    Is the stagg ukg-20 any good? Seeing it for 90usd shipped from ebay/butler music with gigbag. 17" scale and 48mm nut. Kind of ends up being a yamaha gl1 copy with a fractionally wider nut.

    I also got both my lu21p and lu21b from that butler music sale. The lu21p is great, the lu21b seems to have the wrong bridge as the string spacing is too narrow going down the fretboard, but it...

    Eh, it will be just okay, but you would like an islander AC4 or MC4 even better as it has a 1.5" nut and is all around a better instrument for not much more $$. I have a soprano lu21c and it does...
