    Tried looking on the web but can't see any UK equivalents to US suppliers. Is it possible to purchase a complete neck in Blighty? and if so, what kind of price would we be looking at?

    Woods suitable for sides

    Hello, everyone. As well as teaching my students at school to make their own resonators I am considering looking into making more complete Ukes.
