Guitar Players Note

As a matter of information, some guitar players have a very hard time with the soprano and concert ukuleles.... the very short free string length is very unforgiving... particularly on the upper frets. Some guitar player believe all ukes are poorly fretted and they say that the ukes are always sharp on the upper frets.... actually they generally are used to steel strings and tend to overfret a ukulele, bending the tone sharp... especially on the higher frets..

Also note that plastic strings can drive you bonkers. at first going flat.... Yes, they will take a set, and then you will just have to tweak them up to pitch.

We normally recommend Tenor ukuleles for guitar players.
