    Huh. Good to know.

    When I bought my Cocobolo tenor, the DHL shipping was $110 USD from Nicaragua to my door in Wisconsin, USA. No added fees or costs, and it was delivered in a week.

    Wow! That looks like quite a comprehensive set of instruction materials.

    It might make sense to say "Hi" in the beginners section of the Forum?

    It might be worth dropping an email to Kamaka and asking them what the HF-3 nut and saddle are made of.

    Their top models may use bone nuts and saddles. If so, they may allow you to purchase a set.

    I do find the Kanile'a K1-T tenors' A-string is easier to accidentally push or pull off the side edge of the fretboard. Especially compared to a Ko'Aloha KTM-00 tenor.
