      * CUSTOM SETUP - Although each instrument comes with a factory setup, adding a custom setup is strongly recommended. Specifically, if you desire the easiest playability, suffer from arthritis, are particular about your setups, and/or want a low action (i.e., how close the strings are to the fretboard), then please click the "ADD SETUP" button below.

      * REQUIRED FOR WARRANTY - To ensure your warranty is valid, it's crucial to use a humidifier, which is strongly recommended regardless of where you live. Not only do humidifiers safeguard your investment, but they also facilitate the warranty process by demonstrating that you have taken precautions to protect your ukulele. If you ever need to file a warranty claim, the initial query will likely pertain to the presence of a humidifier.
