    If it makes you feel any better, both of my baritone ukuleles are tuned in 5ths (one in octave mandolin tuning, the other in mandocello tuning).

    When you get your Classic could you confirm if it's a full hollow body or semi-hollow as they advertise? Semi-hollow will have a center block running inside from the neck to the tail piece.

    I've tried a few Eastwoods in stores and they are as well made as any Epiphone or Squier, which are well built in their own right. Epiphone has really picked up their game as far as factory setup is concerned but the others require help. I expect pac-rim instruments will need some amount of user-setup so perfection out of the box isn't expected, but I await your report once you've received yours.
    Badgers to you Verne ;-)
