    I believe I use the Taylor guitar pins on mine. They don't fit perfectly, but you get 6 in the pack, and find the best 4 that wiggle in. Meaning, every once in a while, one of the pin will fall out...

    Can confirm that I have not gotten any magical improvement in my ability after playing the Jake model.

    I took a ruler to them (only had a metric ruler handy), but they were about the same at 1.5". The headstocks are just about the same size, with the Kamaka just a bit wider at the top. I think the...

    That would have been quite the arbitrage! There are definitely some subtle touches on this one, which I assume make the price difference, but either way, I've always thought Jake was awesome, so...

    After buying a HF3-D4I (Jake Blue), I have decided to part with my HF-3L (Long Neck Tenor) to make space in my small New York studio. Tonally, the HF-3L is outstanding—you’ll get sparkle on the E...

    Great to hear that they're opening one in town in Kaka'ako. I'll definitely try to stop by when I'm home for Christmas.

    Congrats to Andrew and the team on the expansion.

    I'm under 30 and for me, the two in the ukulele world are identical (no brand affinity for either). In the guitar world, I've owned several Gibsons and several Fenders, so I think of them as...

    I am curious to know how big the ukulele trend really is. I haven't followed the market that closely for a few years, but it feels like it has slowed somewhat since the late 2000s', early 2010s.

    Wow, when'd they stop producing these? I am quite a bit out of the loop. So happy to have a Sceptre--great instruments.

    This is the most exciting ukulele to come out since I started playing back about 10 years ago. I really had two ukulele heroes as I learned the instrument--first was Aldrine because he (along with...

    Beautiful instrument--rare to see a Kamaka with that much curl. I'm still holding out for one of those Jake models later this year; otherwise, I might have picked this one up. Best of luck with the...

    Outstanding price. I'd have bought this immediately if I didn't already own one. The big difference is that this model has the Gilberts which are a ~$400 option. And log 50 was amazing.

    Ditto.

    I believe Aldrine had used Fast Fret in the past. But I personally didn't care for it on the ukulele.

    Also, I love the nylon low G.
