Hi Allen,

Another gorgeous uke!... again! That fiddleback Blackwood looks sensational (to me)!
One question, if I may:
How do you load the strings into the bridge? (Apologies if you have already explained this - maybe I've forgotten... not unusual for me!)

Thanks,
GregL.

Push string through bridge and fish it out the sound hole. Tie a bead onto it and then pull it back up to seat against the bridge patch. I use a Carbon Fiber Bridge patch so will last a lifetime.
