    Anyone care to share a close up pic of a flea or Fluke with sound port? Are they oval or round. Any downside to trying to add one to existing Fluke.

    Also, I saw pic in previous thread of a Fluke with the Ratio tuner added. They were a tad wider that thickness of head stock. I can’t find pic. Could one just add an so,I’d wood veneer to make up the difference?

    That’s really clean. Did Magic Fluke do it or did you?

    I'll check my Fluke later, but my wooden ukes have some supporting material around the inside of the hole, so it's not just a matter of getting a saw and cutting a hole.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I don't think ABS would need any reinforcement. I put one in an Enya HPL uke and it's fine. I wouldn't do it on an expensive one.

    Did you do it yourself, and what difference did you hear?

    Right. Mine doesn't have anything extra inside, just the standard stiffening ridges. Still, I wouldn't want to do it myself.

    Thanks for posting the pics. Oval hole. I would agree, I think the polycarbonate body would. To need to be reinforced. Jerry is yours oval also?
