    ha ha ha, that choked me up!

    IMHO, Luna is a good brand to stay away from. Especially if they're being nebulous in their ads.

    colinondrums,

    Donna LoPrinzi's builds are impeccable. Only thing is, her necks are pretty thin, not much to hold onto. I can't play them very well, but my bestie can. She's a former guitarist.

    What pickup do you have?
    Tammy's uses a LR Baggs 5.0.
    Punchy, mellow, just an all around beautiful sound. Probably the best sounding uke in the house, unplugged or plugged.

    Um, for super accurate tuning?
    Not to sound smarmy, but why not strive for maximum accuracy?
    I find most tuners to be wonky, at best.
    My Peterson Strobe tuner is the best.

    If maple is a dead tonewood, then why would violin makers use it?

    That might be your best bet. Baz reviewed one on Got a Ukulele, was smiling ear to ear, and gave it a very good rating.
    I'm very close to considering the Firefly mini banjo.
