I'll second the advice to talk to Jim Palenscar (especially if you are within the distance to go to his shop). He is a prince of a good guy, who graciously helped me from across the country through em ...

Ian, I'm not sure, but a uni (12?) would for sure be different than a 10 string wouldn't it? I bet a lot of things are done differently on it.
