    I don't think I've been able to play strings on any of my instruments for more than a month or so. They get really scratched where I pick and wear on the frets so much they won't play in tune up the...

    Most people tuck their elbow in towards the torso and use the side of the index finger for the barré. Using the underside or flat part of the finger results in an awkward position for the other...

    Indeed, that is a perilous mission. I took it on and ended up with four Romero Creations instruments within 6 months. One thing I noticed with the Vietnam nut setup is the string grooves are often...

    The lower priced line is made in a different factory and there are a few wrinkles to smooth out. I played a "budget" RC at HMS this weekend and it missed the mark with setup problems and funky tone....

    Yes, I've owned a few cheap 'uku: Takamine G series tenor, Lainikai, Cordoba, etc., and I found the wonderful thing about them is the joy of giving them away to students in need of an 'uku!

    Same thing happened to me several times and you merely have wait a few hours to get things working again. You did nothing wrong. It's their funky spam protection bot flying on autopilot. I've since...

    HMS was out of stock—they said for 3 or 4 months—and I got impatient and bought the last one on earth, which happened to be in California. Should have waited! But I've moved on to greener pastures...
