    hmm, it's a good question about resale, but I'm gonna say "not really". You can expect almost all used ukes to resell for at least 25% less than new. Some more.

    I haven't tried. I had a 19" scale that came with E strings but even there, I didn't like it as good as G-to-G. If I was going to try E-to-e for 17" scale, I'd probably try this octave higher set:...

    We've recently had the truss rod discussion. To summarize:
    -sometimes they help
    -a few ukes have them
    -most do not, including many very expensive brands and customs

    I'm not saying a truss rod...

    I've come to prefer even narrower spacing than the GL1 though I felt it was horribly cramped the first time I tried it at Guitar Center. I found the Mini not as comfortable.

    Hmm, at that budget, and since you're happy with how the KA-T plays and sounds, I'm gonna suggest that adding a quality pickup to the KA-T is well worth considering. I don't know what places in the...

    My new custom tenor guilele came in one of these. Seems fairly sturdy, certainly adequate for home and local transport. I don't know that I'd fly with it, but it was shipped in it (inside a box with...

    Just take it slow, especially at the nut.
    And tenor tension doesn't have to be high. Tuning down a half step or two or three can really help. And some sets are lower tension than others

    Sounds like the nut may be too high. High action at the nut can definitely cause fretted notes to be out of tune

    If you're nervous about drilling it yourself, take it to a competent luthier or repair shop and have them do it.

    You could also try a half strap like the UkeLeash. I prefer to have a pin but I...

    Well, according to Wikipedia, Nashville tuning generally has the bottom 4 strings an octave higher, not the bottom 3. Possible of course, but the C5 third string is tricky.

    "uke with 2 extra bass strings" is accurate. It's been so long since I played real guitar that I try to treat my 6-strings as if they were in ADGCEA tuning (even if they aren't). So I do think of...

    I have never tried a Cordoba uke, but I was fairly impressed with the C1m 1/4-size guitar as a baritone guilele. I sold it after getting a custom Jupiter to replace it. It's laminate so not the most...

    I haven't tried that. I've been using the onscreen keyboard and fretboard for note entry. Also input from MIDI files.
