    Nice to find a mystery uke. Is that a wooden nut? It will be fun to find out more about it like type of wood, etc. Hope it plays well for you.

    painter's tape butted up against the frets lying on the board helps some.
    I file mine like dwizum with just a nail file.
    I'm not doing fine work, just cleaning up frets on cheaper ukes.

    I'm not sure of the term, but I will pass on that I bought a Glarry case and will NEVER buy another. There's nothing wrong with the case build, but the SMELL coming from it is overwhelming. Some sort...

    No I didn't. I've never played one, just thought they were cool. I love the sound of bass. Then again, I want to play banjo. I'm kind of schizoid in what I want to play lol. I don't know that I have...

    If you have a hand that's under 6" from wrist to tip of middle finger, yes. I'm lucky I get enough stretch to play a concert. I'm not like those 6 year olds that have a ridiculous amount of stretch...

    Clean moveable chords

    I have a song I've been practicing a lot that bounces between Bb and Eb. Standard E or An is difficult for me (yes I know everyone) as my index finger curves a bit. I've been using like 333x to sub...

    Thanks for this shot. I have a better view of your tailpiece setup. I'm figuring you bolted the bridge on before you sealed it up. Wood brace underneath right?+
