    Good for you Jerry!

    6 weeks is pretty darn quick for a “made to order” build even if it isn’t exactly “custom”. Especially with all the orders they’ve been getting lately.

    The anticipation of a custom build is almost better than actually getting the finished product. This sounds like a good one!

    Well, let’s see, the string-to-string spacing on my Mini is 1-2/3” so the spacing for 4 strings would be exactly 1”. Add 1/8” on each side so a 1-1/4” neck is perfectly reasonable. And you could go a...

    I think custom is your only option. You might try Pete Mai at Bonanza Ukuleles. His business is booming lately especially with Bazmaz’s recent glowing review, but Pete is not afraid to experiment and...

    That’s kinda what I’m thinking - find a used SUB or just put some Reds on the ME. The first will cost me $250-300 to try. The second about $25. Guess which way I’m leaning.:p

    It is certainly possible though as the string spacing on guileles are less than ukes and they work fine with non-steel strings. To see if that’s really what you want, you could try finding a Córdoba...

    If it has geared tuners, then it is more likely to be the string itself slipping through the tuning peg. If there is an adjustment screw you can try tightening slightly, but I’m guessing there isn’t...

    I don’t know know how it will come stock, but you can do either with the right strings.

    It’s either the strings still stretching or the tuners could be slipping or the string itself could be slipping off the tuning peg. When you say it “fell out of tune”, is it sudden, like going from G...

    I have RSI problems with my hands and wrists anyway. Im sure it is much easier than a full size bass, just more than ukes and guileles. :p

    quick update - I'm having second thoughts about these flatwounds strings. I wouldn't call them high tension but they are kinda doing a number on my wrists, fretting wrist especially. And being in Sam...

    How’s the tension? How do you think they would behave tuning down to Bb?

    It might be squeak-less, but I have yet to meet a squeak-free. It’s personal preference of course, but given the fact that I like unwound low D on my baritone, I don’t find unwound low G thick at...

    I don’t really consider these “alternate” tunings as they are just transpositions of standard tunings, but yes, I do a lot of them. My baritone is currently in Ab instead of G, as it is a short scale...

    Seriously, OP said the soprano was the most played uke, so there’s no reason to mess with it. You are right that it can work, it’s just harder to find a string with the...

    Tenor is the better answer. Concert can work if you want lower tension. Not the soprano.

    Don't do it. The Mini is designed for nylon/flourocarbon strings and would almost certainly be damaged by the higher tension of steel strings.
