    Haven't heard of any offering that, but would be surprised if they did, since very few of the imported from China uke manufacturers (Ohana, Mainland, Kala, etc) seem inclined to offer wider nuts. ...

    Dave, so delightful and soothing in these stressful times. That banjo uke sounds so old-timey, perfect for that song.

    Dunno if the earlier ones were built with thinner wood, especially the top. Someone here probably has measured a few different examples.

    You know, Alvin "Pops" Okami, the founder of KoAloha. He has started a new uke company called UkeSA. The poster was referring to one of these UkeSA ukes as a "Pops' uke.

    Don't bother with big box stores, mostly all low end stuff. Even GC doesn't seem to ever carry Martin ukes, although they have their guitars. Pretty much any uke shopping is online, UU, eBay,...

    I've found that Aquila Nylguts will often bring out the best tone/volume from a cheap uke, more so than flourocarbons. Maybe why they're shipped on most every new cheap uke out there.
