    Concur on the first - "low G" means GCEA or linear C. That's why I said "reentrant G". There's always going to be an element of confusion around this topic, but there's absolutely no reason to misuse...

    Reentrant G tuning for tenor is absolutely possible with several commercial sets available (Living Water and Fremont, probably others) but whether they fit the nut slots on the Fluke I'm not sure...

    The round wounds are nylon core, the flats are steel. AFAIK, you have to order those through Magic Fluke as well. I think they are not on the web site because they don't sell as many fretless basses...

    I was thinking the longer scale might be too high tension at DGBE but I guess that's not an issue if you have it a step higher.

    I do have a super tenor at reentrant cFAD tuning just for the...

    You'd have to check with Ken Middleton to be sure. I'm sure he could make you a custom set if the standard set is too short. But at that scale length, you'd be back in DGBE territory. You might even...

    Yeah, I think that is deceptive at best. But it's also pretty obvious. Anybody buying "solid bamboo" should know what they're getting. I'm not saying it can't make a well playing and sounding uke,...

    Right, I got you. I was just presenting another option, but I probably just confused the issue since my option was for A tuning on 19" scale and OP is talking 17" tenor. Thanks for pointing that out

    FWIW, I can attest the low g Living Water tenor set worked great for Linear A on a 19" Bruko baritone.

    If the bari strings fit the tenor nut, then yes, that should work. Tension on the tenor should be virtually the same. Think about putting a capo at the second fret on your baritone. Now you're at...

    That's almost impossible to do. First, you have listed a mix of individual builders and mass producers which is already apples and oranges. Next, there are brands like Kala that span many "tiers"....

    Love the wood choices. As far as the neck shape, it matters not what other players prefer. If the Pono is "okay" you must have some idea what you don't like about it. Try to communicate that to Aaron...

    The tuners and string ends are just getting the way. Unless I'm mistaken, this is an older model as they aren't in current production (as far as I know).

    Haha! Yeah. I have another "funny" story to tell about this bass already but I can't tell it yet. Too soon. :p (plus I'm waiting for new strings to come in)
