    Would the string ties for guitar be the same size as those sold for ukulele? If you bought 2 guitar sets you'd have enough for 3 ukes.

    I like the look and the idea of adding ease to the string change but they're kind of pricey for what they are.

    I've sold 3 ukes via Craigslist. Yes, you do get some flakes and low-ballers and I had one obvious attempt at fraud so you do have to be careful. The three successful sales were conducted in a gas...

    UAS is an insidious thing. I remember back when I thought having 2 ukes was indulgent! I confess that I was secretly kinda judgey about people who had a whole bunch of ukuleles. Then I had 3. Then I...

    I don't think it was an alternate tuning as was suggested. If he's trying to sell a ukulele to the masses then why would he use an alternate tuning? It's certainly not how they are going to sell...

    I don't think I have what it takes to learn and play the harmonica but I've considered using one of those harmonica racks with a kazoo instead.

    Well it's priced to sell, it's in excellent condition and it's had light/little play so I'm fairly confident it will sell.... eventually. I didn't expect that it would get the looks or interest that...

    I can't say that I've had a lot of exposure to Fender ukes having only played what was offered at Guitar Center and another place that was selling them but I was very underwhelmed by what I was able...

    I was flirting with the idea of an all-solid tenor and was wondering if the Koa Kalane would be a good option at that price point when compared to others at that price. I'm not a fan of knotted...

    It's funny and interesting that such a small change can make such a big difference or even change attitudes.

    Ah, so I have you to thank(?:D) for inspiring the change! :cool: It's such a small change (+ the black strap button) but it's surprising how differently I feel about the uke now. I think it looks so...

    I've had those crooked screws for years but I didn't even really notice them. When the job was done, the tuners were working and they weren't falling off so I didn't really pay them any attention....

    Thanks to all! It's what the tech should have done in the first place (filling in the old holes and re-drilling new) but it turned out to be kind of a fun project. I was a bit nervous re-drilling the...

    It's not that I don't like closed tuners, I have them on some of my other ukes and they're great. I don't know that one is any better than other, it's just a different look. It's just that at the...

    All three iterations of the tuners in this tale were Grovers. All of them performed as they should but it was the looks and substandard installation which were the issue.
