    Yes, I do. Of the several ukes hanging in my home, 6 of the tenors & 2 barrys have adjustable truss rods. By the way, did you watch the video I linked in 2 previous threads?

    Questionable logic. Over the years I have owned several cars with air bags. They were never needed. Would I buy a car without them? No.

    It is short-sighted to look on truss rods as having no...

    I used Fakespot to check the validity of Amazon's reviews of the Ukulele Tenor Size Bundle From Lohanu (LU-T). I checked the tenor because it had the highest number of reviews (4,603) as of instant,...

    Truss rods for ukes are not heavy. Check the video I linked in my previous 2 posts. I have a Pono (tenor) & a Kala (baritone) with truss rods. They are well-balanced instruments, comparable in weight...

    "Few ukes have them" is not any proof that truss rods are not a wise additional protection.

    There was a time when "few " Florida homes had hurricane clips on their roofs, and few Missouri...

    I have 22 ukes. The ones that want to be played send me non-verbal signals saying, "Feeeeed me." Seriously. :p

    Another reason I almost always buy Ponos -- they have a truss rod and, yes, when HMS does a set-up, it sometimes needs to include a truss rod adjustment. Relief can sometimes be very important in...

    Those ukulele cosmosnauts DO speak their minds rather bluntly at times. However, on those occasions when someone has had life kick him in his head, they are quick to gather round to commiserate and...

    I agree with Cadia 100%. I get great FREE set-ups when I buy from Matt at alohacityukes -- plus free strap buttons & low G on request. In my experience, drop ship factory ukuleles are a crap shoot as...

    Some might say that favorable reviews are slanted because the reviewer gets "pick of the litter" instruments. Others might say that less favorable reviews are slanted because the reviewer got an...

    Okay, HERE is a good place to find & buy Fremont low G single string (which I heartily recommend).

    Where low = lower case and high = upper case, I initially set my 6-string as g cC E AA. The unision high A was too dominant & twangy for my ears, so I went to g cC E aA. The result was pleasing to...

    I agree but I also put a surgical mask over the ukulele's sound hole and stay at least 6 feet away when I play it. :p

    The topic is "Craving a Kala?" My answer is No.

    I really like mango's tone but, when it comes to appearance, I only like mango when it's a darker-than-usual hue. Light colored mango looks to me like a poor spruce specimen with the measles, and...
