Thought I already responded to you...oops.   I understand the ambition part.  Mine is mostly finding the time!  Luckily I have a patient wife that puts up with my hobbys.  The other issue is space.  Really cramped for space, but I've carved out a decent little space.  If you have projects you want to get rid of, perhaps we can trade things of sorts?

Hi Brain, Western Mass I see. Saw some of your builds, pretty nice! Just looking for other folks in the area into this addictive musical fun. Are you still building?

Hi Brian. Thanks for the friend request. I see you are a cyclist. I used to do a bit of bike racing (mainly track) but not turned a peddle in anger for quite a few years. All the best. John

Cheers to you and your son! A good win in a tough contest and on his first build non-the-less. Congratulations to you both.

I had the same problem on my first uke. Had to work the slots down to get the action to a lower level. Is it sharp on the first fret?
