Have you tried Papa's boxes? I don't hink he's building at the time but he may have some already built.

Tom Guy at Bluegrass Ukuleles makes amazing tenor Redwood Cigar Box ukes. Check out his Youtube channel. (http://www.youtube.com/user/Bluegrassukes)

Here's mine:

The incredible neck:

You can get any type of tuners on it you want. I believe the machine tuners he uses are Gotoh.

I'm thinking of selling my Papa's Boxes uke, actually.

It's a concert w/ geared tuners. Strings are Worth browns.

It's a good instrument, but I hardly ever play it, 'cause the neck's a bit wide for my amazingly short fingers...

PM me if you'd be interested.

I would also recommend Tom Guy of Bluegrass ukes. I'm really enjoying mine. There are pictures here:


Mine has the Gotoh geared tuners.
