    I'm still fond of the Eleukes. The Peanut is reasonably priced (I can't see paying over a 100 for a solid body uke unless it were to become my "serious" instrument.") The cute-looking solid body...

    Replacing the piezo. Hmm. Is it difficult? I see the screws and panel that probably would access it from the back. It's a nice instrument and could be improved. Meanwhile, thanks for all the answers....

    I have an older Eleuke Tenor w MP3. It's moderately ok (the knobs are fiddly to get a decent sound from it.)

    Does anyone have an idea what are good strings? Aquilas are the default, I don't want...

    I have a 3/4 guitar by Cordoba The sound is good, not as deep as my full sized classical but fairly loud. The only issue I have with it, is that the fingerboard is narrower than the full sized...

    The Cadete came out before the Protege and they are very similar. I love my Protege. I know this is funny, but I keep it next to my bed. Sometimes I can't sleep, and I can play it in bed. Unlike a...

    If you want folk/classical nylon strings, Cordoba makes a few different small guitars from 1/4, 1/2 up to 3/4. I was given a 3/4 Protege to review and it's actually my favorite guitar for traveling....

    I use PIMA and supposedly, you're not to use "A" unless you have an inconvenient string crossing. My teacher is a BEAR about fingering accuracy and angle and fingernails. I have to say, I am, after...

    I have to agree that for guitar, a teacher LIVE if possible is a must.

    The guitar has such minute, subtle technique. Everything is important: the angle of the hands to the strings, fingering, the...

    Absolutely agree with you that guitar-uke is easy, uke-guitar is NOT. But guitar is a totally different animal. I love the sound of those bass strings. You really do accompany yourself, the way you...

    Possibly, a 3/4 guitar. I have one of these Cordoba Proteges. It's actually less expensive than some of the crummy ukes out there but has a decent sound. It is also quite a bit more portable than a...

    I'd say, if you ever intend to play classical guitar, don't use the thumb. I'm struggling to keep my thumb in center of the neck, which is necessary to move flexibly around the fretboard. I started...

    Good to know they have good support.

    I just got a set of normal tension Pro Arte for my guitar. They don't seem right. The high e immediately bulged and did weird things and they don't sound...

    Can you find a teacher? While uke is fairly easy to learn on one's own, there are hand training tricks that you need to learn to be efficient on that bigger fretboard and the six stings. You won't...

    I forgot to add something important.

    You need to read music to truly play classical guitar. Frankly, reading music is good for any instrument, but really good teacher will want you to read music,...

    No good. I just took the plunge at age 64 (months from 65.) Someone wanted me to review a new Cordoba guitar for beginners and I agreed and took the plunge.

    That's MY uke--a mahogany with amber colored tuners. I strung it with Southcoast strings (gorgeous.) If mahogany is too "ordinaire" for you, they make mango and red cedar tonewoods too. The mahogany...

    For what it's worth, I really like the Protec Max bags They are like violin cases, have firm foam and really protect the uke, but are not heavy. I have one for the...

    This is a probably fruitless request, but I had a great fingerstyle song (no lyrics) a while ago that was somewhat modern (new-age-ish) and written by one guy for his friend. Very pretty and not...
