    Default Happy NUD!: custom Brüko longneck

    I missed the jangly sound of a soprano, but also wanted to have little room for my fingers. Enter longneck. This is a Brüko soprano with a concert neck. Full maple with a little flame in it (the Germans call it Riegelahorn) with fretboard, bridge, sound hole ring and neck stripe in walnut. Arched back for massive projection.
    It came with an extra bridge saddle for lower action. Great service!


    I call it a CappuBrüko! Or a Brükoccino...



    I immediately took off the Pyramid strings and put some Worth Brown on. Sounds a thousand times better and looks way more stylish. Well lush.

    Hi Saskia + Michael,
    wonderful uke- Congrats- must have played this one, too, while at the shop in June.
    Still need to put a Tusq bridge on and exchange the strings, which Worth Browns exactly did you put, please?
    Cheers,
    Christian
    Can somebody save me from running my mouth, please?
