Last Christmas I wrote about my new ukulele and about one of my old ones. Here is an update.
Few years back I bought a circa 1920 tenor ukulele from a guitar maker that I know. It needed work and I finally got it to a luthier. I took it to Woodsy’s in Medina. Here is what it looked like when I took it in.
Notice it is missing pegs and there is a blue piece of thick rubber near the bridge.
Couple weeks passed and when I picked it up I was amazed. The pegs were replaced with grover tuners and the piece of rubber is gone. Turns out the rubber was a mute used to quiet it down.
The uke has a clear, loud, bright tone. I am working on some tunes and when I’m satisfied I will post them.
If you need work done on any instrument take it down to Woodsy’s and you won’t be disappointed. Make sure you stop across the street to Sully’s for a great Irish meal and some Guinness.
