Soprano Baby Dreadnought.
Danish Oil finish
Beautiful! I like through-the-bridge strings.
I'm guessing the smaller the bridge (with the reduced surface area) the more critical the gluing to the top would be. Running the strings through the bridge would put less stress on the glue joint.
I like to control everything I can in a build, and I certainly don’t want a neck to bend in an unpredictable way or amount. So I make a super stiff neck, and custom add the exact relief I want to suit the instrument (steel string, classical or uke)
A stiff neck also adds sustain, so win win ��
I agree. Yep ! My way : Heavy duty carbon tube glued with epoxy in a groove.
And yep again, fruit on the cake, more sustain ...
My goodness, the humble ukulele has come a long way. :rock:
LOL, yep. My stock of spare bicycle parts seems to be growing, too.That's how it begins - with spare parts. Gee, I have these two parts, so I might as well start building. I've done the same thing with ukes, and now I have enough parts to build a computer. I love those "spare parts."
