    Yeah, that's Eb tuning (3 half steps above gCEA) and with soprano strings, should be good on this shorty. I don't know what strings it ships with. If they feel like a "normal" tension already at gCEA, you may not want to start cranking them up

    All I know is that they come with Aquila Soprano of some description and I haven't yet changed anything. I shall give it a go. Thanks!

    My attitude has always been that if one looks long enough and hard enough they can always find something. Quit looking inside your ukulele, it is fine. Ohana makes good ukuleles.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    This is actually really good advice. I can find flaws in my priciest ukes which cost me over $1000 if I look hard enough. I'm such a perfectionist regarding build quality that it's better just not to look that hard and accept that nothing is absolutely perfect, no matter how much money you spend. Regarding Ohana and other similar Chinese made brands, having some glue pooling inside the uke is pretty normal. I find it doesn't affect the sound one little bit.

    I buy my Ohanas from either Mim or AlohaCityUkes. I have never gotten anything but superbly built & set-up Ohanas from either of those 2 dealers. Perhaps those 2 dealers are so "picky" that the distributor is careful as to what he sends them.

    Mim does sell "Seconds," but I doubt if glue would qualify.

    Yes, but they are clearly identified as "seconds" and are discounted as such.
