I built a concert version of this ukulele last summer. This summer, I decided to do a tenor version with a couple of extra bells and whistles.

94023


It has a 17.5 inch scale length.

94022

The bridge has a piezo rod pickup wired to the endpin jack.

94024

Instead of friction tuners, I used banjo style 4:1 ratio planetary geared tuners.

Daniel, as ever its always good see what you are making. Its a really great video, it must have taken you a while to make it. There are all kinds of ukes and uke makers so I hope this will inspire some to have a go.

Well I'll be damned if it doesn't sound fantastic. Nice bit of work there, very creative.

I think it's fantastic, but you already knew that :). I built a concert one this last spring.
