I built this uke with an onboard headphone amplifier and preamp. The neck is maple. The fretboard and bridge are rosewood, and the body is basswood. I curved a 1/4 inch aluminum rod into the body shape. The circuit board is from C.B. Gitty. http://www.cbgitty.com/amplifier-kits-parts/2-5w-artec-amp-circuit-board-with-pre-wired-leads/

It has a 17 inch scale length.

Thanks for posting: it's always interesting to see what others on the forum are building whether it be a standard uke or something a little different.

As a junior high music teacher with the ukulele, ukes with headphone amps would be my dream. I can hear the silence now :)
