    Hard to tell from the video, I presumed they were all metal strings.

    I'm assuming all steel strings. Can anyone determine the tuning from the open position?

    Martin Mull did Slide Ukulele long ago - here's a promo clip from 1973.



    I think he's playing a Harmony ukulele starting at 1:39

    Great video, thanks for sharing!
    Do you reckon he's playing a normal uke or a special lap-steel one? The headstock looks a bit different if I'm not mistaken?
