Hi folks!

I'm gonna build a tenor ukulele for a school project and the problem is that I realised that I didn't know the measurements for the neck, you know the frets and all that, and I don't own a tenor so i can't draw it off. So I'm wondering if anyone out there has a blueprint/plan for the neck? It would be the most appreciated! Btw sorry if my english suck :p

Stewart McDonald has loads of free information on their website.

Use the fretscale calculator to determine fret spacing. If you don't have the tools/skills to produce a slotted fretboard, let me know. We can do that for a reasonable fee.


You can get tenor plans from Hana Lima 'ia in Honolulu. I trained at this shop and their tenor was one of my early builds. It's a great uke!

Their uke building book is the best.


Anyone interested in a mainland uke building class watch our website. We just finished a soprano class. We'll be building concert resos in the fall.
