    Default ukulele dimensions

    I am making a ukulele storage and need to be able to fit a tenor ukulele in it. Could someone give me the dimensions. (length,width, height)(if you can get the height+the strings that would be nice.)

    FYI I have a soprano ukulele but may eventually want a tenor.

    thanks in advance.

    These dimensions will give you a bit of leeway for a tenor with the standard 17" scale:

    total length - 27"
    upper bout width - 7"
    lower bout width - 10"
    thickness - 4"

    Good luck with your project!

    You should do that. Someone else is going to want to do the same thing.

    Just a thought. Some mfg's offer an 18" scale so you may want to keep that on mind.

    And... if you ever decide to get a baritone...

    Thanks to all for the info.

    I will make sure that I take it into consideration.

    I am trying to keep the project somewhat small in order to keep the price down.

    Just for the record a 17" scale 8 string ukulele needs 28" as well and these are reasonably common.
