Re: reattatch plastic bridge

I partially plugged the holes with toothpick slivers, replaced the ugly little screws and handed it to my student. She’s off and running. Er, off and strumming.

Re: reattatch plastic bridge

I'll try the toothpicks. The top is pretty soft, splintery plywood. The screws have torn most of the way out, and I had sort of shrugged them off. I may have time to get the holes plugged and the screws re-installed. If I had smaller fingers, or if the correct tools were accessible, I'd try a tiny n...

reattatch plastic bridge

A student brought me a super low-end uke. Bridge placement seems fine, and the action is reasonable, but the bridge has lifted. It may not have even been glued down, only held with screws. If there was glue, it went on over the finish, and didn't demonstrate much holding power. I'll see this girl to...

Re: “Keep me logged in”

I am on a Mac, yeah. iPhone and MacBook.
I was having the trouble with a windows machine I'm on at times. That seems to have cleared up soon after the update, though.

Re: Ex-wife ran over guitar

I appreciate this, Peter. It’s a particular aesthetic - not the purposefully stressed look some go for, but the beauty of something perfectly functional made from what someone else might toss in the trash. Keep it up!

“Keep me logged in”

Is anyone else having trouble staying logged in? I haven’t timed it, but if I’m gone for a few minutes I’m still logged in. If it’s the next day, the system asks for username and password again. This is costing me several dozen keystrokes a week, so you can imagine the crisis! Seriously, thanks for ...

At least in these pics, the black hardware and pick guard look very classy against that mahogany.

Keep it up! I enjoy coming back and seeing a new crop of your pictures every couple days.
