    Cedar tops are not for everyone’s ear. Cedar is a very soft wood compared to spruce, the sound may seem muted when compared to other ukuleles.

    I would suggest using a barr for the first fret since you can. Changing in and out of the full barr will come with time. Using a full barr will set you up for moving that chord up the neck. The same...

    Yes, the electronics so play an important role in the sound.
    Intonation issues and buzzes are also amplified. You still need a good ukulele to ply in.

    My James Hill DaSilva is one of my favorites. It is from the same wood set as Jamesí original instrument.
    I got to play on stage with him many years back, matching ukuleles, it was a real experience.

    I file sharp corners all the time. It’s a finishing step missed on most ukuleles. I use an emory board and polish it off with a fingernail buffer.

    I just broke down and bought a Bose S1, it is unbelievable.
    Expensive, but I am really impressed. My ukes and voice sound clear and clean.
    I even used it with my Ubass the other day.
