Is there a way to get the intonation ... the notes going up the fret board are flat. I don't see how it can be adjusted.

@spirittoo, that's one of the dilemmas of acoustic bass ukes with that bridge system. I've heard using different strings, like the Kala/Galli flatwound nylon core, but that might not always help. If you can still return it, I suggest looking at the Hadean violin/Hofner style bass that has a floating bridge, which can be adjusted by just sliding the bridge. (FYI, U-Bass is the specific designation by Kala, the generic term is bass uke.)
