    I replaced the stock friction tuners with Grover 6s. The silicone washer makes tuning much easier and more secure. $25 upgrade and you can do it in a few minutes. Mine also had the wood fretboard,...

    I own the concert Firefly and it’s terrific. Plenty of volume if you want it. I use a handkerchief behind the bridge to dampen the volume if needed. Highly recommended.

    I’m surprised this wasn’t done earlier. Was this from the open mic, Steve?

    Anyway, George and Ringo did some fine collaborations without the other lads.

    Good luck. Unless Makala has changed the materials, the uke is 100% plastic, so there’s not much you can do that’s correctable.

    Somebody grab this. If it had been available six months ago, I would have gotten it. Not in the position to expand the herd right now.

    I owned an SK-35G and loved it (sold when I was downsizing my collection). You will need to humidify it. I didn’t one winter and a small crack developed between the sound hole and the fret board. Had...

    People say the letter, but I think it should be the number. The spiffier models are the 1s, 3s and 5s.

    Hi everyone. We are settled in our new place but far from unpacked. I made sure to have a uke or three handy, even so! If you watched The Drew Carey Show back in the day (with Ryan Stiles, Craig...

    The uke size model works nicely. Even pressure and light enough to not bring the uke out of balance. Recommended.

    I also would appreciate any updates on Rob. I’m thinking about him a lot.

    Hi Seasonistas! I’ve been AWOL for a short time. We have downsized and moved to a smaller and more manageable place. Plus, I’m in the process of changing jobs. It’s all good. I’ll be back in the...

    Yes, I'd at least see how much the luthier would charge to repair it. If it's free of cracks and the neck is straight, it should be a wonderful player. Here's a standard Keiki on Reverb:

    I think this got the most views of the year and it may have been the first one I recorded after we were put in quarantine. And it’s fun.

    That's (generally) correct. I upgraded to 4s and/or 6s on my three MFC ukes. I had to open the holes slightly with a reamer on one of them, but it's possible the holes closed (wood expanded) slightly...
