    He seems like a totally sensible lad who is not overly obsessed with uke. You need to get him in here.

    Personally I am pretty picky about instrument action.

    Any new uke I get, I get a feel for it, do some action height measurement using a guitar action ruler.

    Generally a bit of minor sanding of the saddle and occasionally a bit of nut filing is all it takes to get a uke play exactly the way I want.

    That's kind of the philosophy I have adopted (without having a uke). I reckon I might hit up the hock shops over the weekend and see if there's an axe I can rip apart and practice setting up!
