    I didn't see the scale size, I'm liking it even more now. I went for a cedar top 24B as I was going for sort of a classical guitar sound - or at least that was my logic. I'm quite happy with it for...

    Original Poster - going back to the question/statement that started the thread.

    Ooh, nice! It looks like the body depth is a bit more shallow than normal? I like that. It makes it a bit more natural feeling to me. That's one of the reasons I went with my Cordoba (not mahogany),...

    Fluorocarbon is my go to string choice. Worth or Martin are what I've used, but some people swear by Living Waters. If it wasn't for the squeaking, I like Aquila Sugars a lot. They don't squeak for...

    If that turns out to be too much work/money, replace the nut to get the strings spread out a bit more evenly. Baritones have wider string spacing than your CS40, but you might not want to space them...

    I play mostly finger style. I don't spend much time high up the fretboard though.

    They're pretty cool little ukes. I tried one once but it wasn't what I was looking for at the time so I missed out. I didn't know there was a UPT option. I'm surprised there's room for UPTs on that...

    Since people are mentioning Kala (solid top only), I'll add Cordoba 24C. I've got the 24B and like it a lot.

    Haha, probably the opposite of Spiderman fingers! One tip I've heard (and it sort of works for me) is to use hand lotion if the strings are squeaking. I think it depends on your skin type/condition...

    I agree. Strings are such a personal thing. What one person absolutely loves and recommends, you may detest. Not just the sound, but the thickness and texture of the strings and apparent tension as...

    If you keep the pegs, see what tips you can find online for making them more usable. Last year some online tips saved me from going batty helping my wife tune her new violin! :rolleyes:

    I'm very curious to know how this turns out. I really loved the way the sugars chimed, but had to take them off due to squeaking. If the squeak is gone but the sound is still so nice, I'll buy the...

    Depends on the song or even the part of the song. If there's a lot of sequential strings or focusing on a single string, then it's easy to go for the thumb. Also, Jerry's technique and sometimes full...

    Very nice and I like the story that goes with it. I was looking at the violin pegs and I actually thought they were pegheds at first, so it wouldn't change the look much if you did that mod. Or keep...

    It's probably better I don't know, but I'm going to ask: Who is the Canadian internet seller?

    Okay, I'm preparing myself for the feats of mental strength required to not buy one. :rolleyes:

    I'm not a fan of the vertical video either, but I think it might become more common as it seems the preferred format for mobile apps like Instagram and probably most apps used by kids. There's...

    Confirms my recollection of the Fremonts being thinner than a lot of the other strings I've used. Good to hear you found something you really like.

    Good to know local sources. The selection in Vancouver isn't great relative to the size of the metro area. Tough to find many brands here.

    A little googling and you'll see the virus wouldn't survive the trip over on a package. But, you can probably get by with less stuff from Aliexpress, so don't order if it's not important.
