    Welcome aboard!

    I agree, the uke is a low stress instrument and is easy to enjoy without lots of experience or time invested. Can't really say that about bagpipes and cello!

    Here's my converted 1923 Gibson trapdoor tenor in its ukefied iteration. 13" neck and the nut is 1.5" wide. Jake put a low G on for me. Works fine.
