The system combines a custom version of the company''s Element undersaddle pickup with an endpoint preamp and soundhole-mounted volume control.

Nipomo, CA (October 12, 2011) -- The all new L.R. Baggs FIVE.O ukulele system is small, light-weight, and specifically tuned to track the uke’s natural dynamics and its unmistakably unique voice.

The system combines a custom version of our award winning Element undersaddle pickup with a miniature endpin preamp, soundhole mounted volume control and is powered by a 3 volt coin cell battery. The entire system weighs less than one 9 volt battery and tucks away neatly inside the small instrument for a non-invasive installation. L.R. Baggs says the pure, all-discrete electronics are voiced for the most accurate frequency response you have ever heard. Street $149.99

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
