I built this electric ukulele with 3 harp strings. The body is alder and the fretboard is rosewood. The neck is maple and has a steel (non-adjustable) truss rod. The 7 pole pickup is wired to a master volume control.

This build presented a few challenges, but I'm pleased with the results.

Nice. I like how you curved the headstock around. Cool shade of green too

Your a crazy man!

Nice though.

One question- when does a harp uke become a 7 string travel guitar?

Thanks Pete. I am thinking about some other songs to play on it. Should I do a heavy metal song? :)

Thanks for checking it out everyone. Later this year, I want to make a regularly shaped acoustic harp ukulele. That should be fun too.
