Try the Lark in the Morning website. They have a catalogue which features instruments I'd never imagined could exist, and quite often list tunings for string instruments.

I'll check my printed catalogue at home tonight and post tomorrow if I come up with an answer.

If it has three strings, it might be related to a balalaika. I've never heard of an ukulele with three strings. Unless it was broken. A friend of mine plays a HUGE bass balalaika--he stands up and rests one corner (balalaikas are triangular) on the ground. It has an amazing sound.

Aloha,
Mark

Gretsch used to make very strange things, and I think they made an electrofied uke for Arthur Godfrey--a four-stringer, though (the uke, not Arthur, if anyone remembers who he was [HowEEhyeh!], on a full-sized f-hole body).Eddie Condon used to play one of those, too.
