    They really are beautiful, well constructed ukes. I've had a couple of the No. 6 model, one newer, and an older one from the 50's. Both were very nice. IMO, they work better for fingerstyle, and...

    This one was written by Harry Nillson, and later covered by Randy Newman on piano, which is the version I followed, after I first heard it this morning. After a serious battle trying to transpose it...

    Wow, they're 0 for 2. I know that would bug me forever, no matter how good it sounded, YMMV. I'd send back for a refund, and look for a brand with better QC.

    The ones with black saddle and nut were earlier models, some of which also had a shorter fingerboard with only 12 frets, more like a vintage soprano. Personally, I like not having the fretboard...

    Yes, Martin M600s sounded great on mine, they are a bit fatter than Worth Clears. Worth Browns also sounded outstanding, although a bit mellower and sweeter.

    Even a plastic credit card is only .6mm thick, so you'd need 2 shims cut from that to raise the action .6mm. Pretty easy to try, I did it recently to a cheap tenor, taking it from about 2.25mm to...
