I want to give a go at building an electric, solid-body, steel string uke.

Where is a good place to go for plans for that, or at least some sort of how-to that I can study?

Also, where can I go to buy hardware for an electric uke, like bridges and pickups and such?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks!

I documented building a tele style electric ukulele here:

Plans: http://www.michaeljking.com/electric_ukuleles.htm

Great place for bridges: http://www.moongazermusic.com/bridges.html (I've also used this bridge http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-STRING-BRIDGE-CIGAR-BOX-GUITAR-ELECTRIC-UKULELE-CHROME-/190829437766?pt=Guitar_Accessories&hash=item2c6e522346)

Four pole custom pickups: http://www.almuse.co.uk/ukulele_pickups.html
