    You're welcome Dave!

    Now, of course my first thoughts are can I put nylon/fluoro strings in it?

    I wonder who will be the maverick and test it out with other-than-metal string? hmmmm?

    I really want to get an 8-string concert uke and tune it in fifths to CGDA all string pairs as unisons, but it seems that these traditional 'Taropatch' ukes are not offered by any makers currently. (Basically like two sets of Aquila 31U strings on it)

    PhilUSAFret has said that Ohana was coming out with an 8-string concert, but I've not heard of it being offered yet...

    Booli, I don't think this instrument would sound good without steel strings on it. It's braced for steel.
