    You've made a really nice job of that. The string spacing looks very natural.

    I don't know for sure, but have given it some thought. At the time all ink pens had the regular split knib. These devices were still in use when I was a youth, and I don't reckon they would be...

    I don't have any particular Eleuke story to recount, but I did buy a Bugsgear Eleuke five or six years ago. I was disappointed with it, at first. I bought it thinking it was a soprano, but it is...

    I've been playing ukes for about twenty-five years and have only ever had one string breakage. I don't know what caused that one, but it seems to me that such events are rare indeed.

    Hey Fingerguy, don't start thinking about a soprano tuned a, D, F#, B - you'll blow a gasket!

    Ah! I can now see what you are proposing, LogDog. I've never built a round bodied, or so-called camp uke, but the ever helpful ProfChris has. Perhaps he will chip in.

    When I got my Martin style 1, it was fitted with Aquila Nylguts. It sounded rather brash to my tender ears, so I fitted Worth Browns. Now it is much more mellifluous (lovely word!).
