    Sold three and bought two leaving me with three.

    I've had good luck with activated charcoal in a cloth bag placed in the sound hole for a while followed by ceder chips. Don't forget to wipe down the outside of the instrument too.

    Send the uke back and get whatever credit you can. Buy the uke from the "mom and pop" store and gain back whatever good karma you can.

    Some high end classical guitars are built with "double tops". Two very thin layers of tone wood separated by Nomex or similar material. Has any one tried this with a ukulele top?
