    I can't see the arch in your photo. Perhaps you are referring to the curve from bottom to top of the bout? That is generally not called arched back; an arched back will have a convex back.

    1/2" sounds like a lot; is it a soprano?

    My soprano (2020 model) has ~1mm at its highest (it is hard to measure so I just estimated) arch on its back. I don't have my concert (also 2020 model)...

    My 2020 Kamakas have arched backs. It is slight but still noticeable. So, I'm curious why Kamaka says they have flat backs?

    It also states clearly that it's a "Novelty" item.

    Now, we just need some adventurous UU member to buy one and check if it can actually make any sound.

    No, nobody buys a bed just because of an extra pillow; a bed can always use an extra pillow.

    However, you shouldn't put more humidifiers inside a case than required.

    In this case, there's really no good answer because these are premium makers that build competing instruments... I'd...

    My wall hangers were originally purchased for guitars, and they work ukes by hanging the ukes up side down. It might look a bit strange, but I find it very convenient.

    I recommend you wait a week or so before any changes. That'll give your uke and strings time to settle in.

    I guess you have one more question in the thread's subject line.

    Down side? Yes, extra cost, extra weight, extra parts to break and rattle.
