"Hey Darryl, all I can think of is either a bad solder joint, or maybe you're using acoustic strings? Most acoustic strings are bronze wound and not magnetic. Make sure you're using steel wound strings (electric guitar strings) I suppose a…"

"I have used the surface mount flat pup (wickedbucker) it’s about $30.  Now there is the Gittybucker for $13.  Has anyone tried the Gittybucker?  If so what has your experience been?"

I'm so glad you set up a uke group...great!
I think ukes are a great first instrument to build and so much fun to play.
I'm dying to get nr.2 done. So many projects and only so much time but
i'm hoping to get it done within two weeks.
I'll post it of course when it's ready.
Bye Andy, Have Fun,
Shelley.
