    Good thoughts, Aqua. For what it's worth, I've purchased several times from both Mike and Mim, as well as the folks at The Ukulele Site, and I always just tell them that I'd like the action to be more in the "medium" range--- in other words, nothing crazy. I think they all share that general philosophy, realizing that a too-low action can have the unintended effect of diminishing the instrument's projection and tone. Again, I totally realize how subjective this all is, but I've had nothing but great experiences with all of these merchants, and it's clear that they know their stuff and want the customer to be happy with a purchase.

    Good word, Bill and Aqua. That’s been my experience, too. Now to more important stuff? Who do you pick to make it to the World Series? I’m pulling for the Braves! How about you, Bill?

    They are. But we'd only see them in the WS! :-)
