    Maybe the Graphtec Tunaleles tuners are the only ones still in stock or there's a software issue? I'm still waiting on a Homestead order with Gotohs, albeit the order no longer shows in my profile...

    I often refer to my 6 and 7 string classical guitars as big honkin' 'ukuleles!

    I lived in Waikiki for over 10 years—played dinner gigs—and enjoyed my time there before I moved on to another career. And, sure, I knew all the hole in the wall places but too much traffic nowadays...

    I don't think it's a notes vs shape/pattern thing for guitarists. Most of us can noddle on the darn thing like crazy before the left hand cramps up. It's the tiny scale and fingerboard of the...

    Maybe look into a Spanish requinto (tuned A to A) or alto guitar—they're basically just another term for guitalele. I've seen models from Spanish makers such as Almanza, Alhambra and Ramirez, as well...

    Using calipers to measure, the nut on my TT6 is 49.41mm. I'm guessing they all vary a wee bit but wider is always better for me. The Kanile'a GL6 can be ordered with a radius if you do a custom...

    Yes, according to HMS specs, the Pono guilele is 1.75" or 44.5mm. Kanile'a's Islander GL6 has a 50mm nut albeit no radius. The GL6 has the most comfortable guilele fingerboard I've played.

    The Pono kiku is too narrow for me—unplayable. The Romero Creations Baritone 6 is 49mm at the nut and has a mild radius. Sounds pretty dad burn decent too.

    Or use a longer screw. But, yeah, I've tapped in toothpicks many many times to tighten up striped screw holes and it works great.

    Early this year my 2019 Kanile'a GL6 came with a ABS hardshell case. The prior year they had a molded foam case covered with fabric—sorta a rigid gig bag style.

    Are those the pink tinted ones? I wonder if they're derived from the Seaguar Pink leader?

    Use of Seaguar Pink on my Kremona Coco (cedar/rosewood) mellowed it out nicely. Worth Browns and Aquila Nylgut were too bright.

    I briefly owned the Fishman Loudbox Mini and hated it: quacky and unnatural to my ears and not enough controls to dial in a nice tone. I suspect the Mini is optimized for steel-string tone and just...

    That's due to the three braces on the back—acts sorta like a secondary soundboard. Play a chord or note with the ST on you gut and immediately lift it off your gut and you'll hear the volume suddenly...

    Oddly, Minnesota is supposedly where many of my ancestors lived before heading to Oregon, so maybe there was some cosmetic pull. Most of my instruments are from Asia and Europe with a couple customs...
