    I placed my Tokai 'Cats Eyes' solid mahogany soprano in the rear foot well of the car. It was in a softish, padded bag. Later, I folded the rear seats forward, not realising that they also drop into...

    Wastella, wouldn't it be easier to accept the position of the bridge and the length of the neck and change just the fret board?

    1833 is G#Maj7 but I have small hands and find it an impossible reach. I will not be having a hat made with 0:8:8:11 emblazoned upon it, but it is a pleasant sounding inversion.

    Hi Penny,

    Don't get discouraged. I've been playing for more than twenty-five years and I wouldn't even attempt to play 0259! (top to bottom). I've got small hands. It is a physical impossibility....

    I can't make sense of those instructions either. How complicated can it be? I would simple take the whole thing apart, identify what is causing the problem, fix it, and Bob's your father's brother.

    If I lost all my ukuleles I would make myself another cigar box uke and buy one HPL cheapie to keep the car. It's great to have a herd of two dozen assorted sopranos, but I could live without them.

    There seems to be an assumption that reducing the capacity of the body - or is it the area of the top? - will inevitably lead to a reduction in the volume of sound produced. I doubt it, and would...
