    I like the Graphtecs. My third Bonanza that I referenced above just came in (NUD post soon) and also has them. They don't look as good as Gotoh UPTs, but seem to work about as well out of the box. If anything I like the 6:1 ratio a little better than the 4:1. I guess we'll see how well they hold up, but so far, so good.

    Nice to hear Jim. How they function is most important. They should last a good long time. Type ukulele, which are pretty high end, had them on a nice concert on HMS site. I like fact you have options. Also $25-30 isn’t shabby either for retro. Thanks for reply.

    Sorry meant to type in Tyde from California by Lake Taho. Still one finger typing on iPad. I’m used to full keyboard but don’t have a system right now!

    I knew who you meant. You know can edit your posts later, right?

    Hopefully it was just a fluke on mine, but I was not horribly impressed with the Graphtec tuners. I purchased a uke with them recently, and one of them started to get loose. You could literally watch the tuner spin out of tune. Had a replacement sent, and then another started doing the same thing. I decided to go to the gotoh tuners instead.

    Nice vid Jim. As always. Cool soprano. Great to have handy during travels. Or right at hand at home.

    I don't know if Bonanza offers the option, but do you think your Thinline model would benefit from a side port? To give the player a better idea of the sound while playing? Just curious.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you donít begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Sorry to hear that. Hmm. Can't go wrong with Gotoh.

    I think they do offer the option but not entirely sure. I doubt it would help much on the thinline, but I dunno. Full depth with a side port would be an interesting experiment. Why don't you try it and let us know how it goes?
