    Will be fine like everyone else says. Let your strings sit and settle in, the uke will play and sound better for it. I'd be more worried about the constant on/off tension on the neck by loosening...

    It's A Thing.

    If you're into cheap ukes then you're into them, it's an actual thing in itself, as is spending a lot of cash on ukes. That's if you look on the ukes as little treasures to collect and play about...

    I agree! These sweet, luscious, kind fruits shouldn't be bound and strung, then played without thought or feeling by portly gentlemen in Hawaiian shirts, It's an outrage!

    You know that both materials play well, so I would let your heart rule your head on this one. Go with the one that suites the uke. Pick the one that goes with the other wood used. I know you'll want...
