I've got a uke that I don't use so I may give it a go. 

I may have to check that tuning won't snap it in half. rofl

I had a look at perch polls on banjos (I didn't know what one was :) ) The word gad me thinking of fishing. rofl

I hope that I can get away without one.

I figure that a way to go would be to replace one string at a time and bring it into tune and see how things sound and look. And then on to the next one. 

Will do some more research :)

Interesting idea. I guess using the strongest one would be advisable. We have Ovation mandolins in stock too. :)
