Tyler Jackson's Uke
1920s Hawaiian, Koa
7-2012



Refret with modern wire
Clean and Wax, no refinish


Old wire has no barbs and is brass


Stewmac 147 wire is my choice


Leveled and recrowned


Body  and neck cleaned and buffed, then waxed


Installing vintage Grover Champion Uke tuners


With proper paper washers
