    The maker could be doing the bridge in a Native American thunderbird symbol style. Looks a lot awful like that, to my eyes at least.

    Although the UPT installation instructions is fairly straightforward, I got my local luthier to do. I just donít trust myself for reaming straight holes in the S1.

    Welcome to the S1 club, Adam! I don’t suppose your S1 uke comes with the original Martin Feeding and Caring booklet which provides the print year of the booklet. It’s not a direct indication but does...

    When Wife said my uke playing is too loud while she is watching her drama, I lightly brush the strings.

    I wish the poll option count can go more than 10 to accommodate all the possible variations. In the end, itís seemingly more logical to create the poll based on size and scale length. :)

    I’m definitely picking Soprano over any other size if there’s only 1 choice. I did try to like tenor but I just can’t.
