I must say the Gitty Lightning brass cone is pretty. Not much acoustic volume though. It needs the Delta pickup to be heard.

For Ukulelles the friction work ok. Low tension gut strings will hold fine. Steel strings need machines.

Looking good.  I don't much like friction tuners either.

Hey Korrigan. They tend to pile up. It's like a living room guit jam. Beware the obsession.

The uke looks great but yeah, that's quite a backdrop.  : )
