    I'm prefer heal of the neck, and I have no concern what-so-ever adding buttons to my ukes, no matter how expensive they are. I believe they ADD value to the uke because a strap can be used when needed, or not.

    I always put a piece of painter's tape where I'm going to drill. It doesn't take much for the drill bit to slip a "bit."

    To find the center of the lower bout, I use the joint that most ukes have for left and right. For up and down, I cut a piece of paper the width of the bout and then fold it in half. There's no measuring in 32nds or 64ths.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Don't forget that some tenors and baritones have a truss rod in the neck.

    Yes, this comes from experience. ...
    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 don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Headstock!! I find the neck doesn't have enough support if I attach to the heel lol. I think if I did more strumming then fingerpicking I would be fine with attaching it to the heel though
