QUESTION...

What are the scale and fret measurements, also the tuning for a micro ukelele?

I think it's the piccolino size, smaller than the sopranino size.

I have recently started building ukes and have just finished building the jig for my micro ukelele project. It is going to be half the size of the soprano uke.

I have read about the Nano Uke made by UK builder Andy's Ukeleles and am struggling to find details.

Can anyone help me out with the measurements for the scale and fret measurements, also the tuning?

Regards

Here's a link to a fret calculator. http://www.stewmac.com/fretcalculator

If you want it to be half the size of a soprano, then the scale length would be between 6.5 and 6.75 inches.

A lot of people tune tiny ukes an octave higher than a normal soprano.
