  1. #1

    Default Farengeli Custom Tenor Build

    Order placed July 2019.
    Will update as the build progresses.............

    I found a typo in the thread heading......Should read "Ferangeli Guitar"
    I hope that this does not affect my chances of being promoted to a Senior Member some day?

    Wow. Can't wait to see the progress on your Ukulele. I couldn't find Farengeli but I did visit the Farangeli. If it was them their work looked great although I couldn't figure out how to order one .

    In any event welcome to UU

    The best way to initiate an order is go to their site and complete and send back the custom build worksheet email link back to them. They are not that prompt to respond so patience is needed on your part. If interested, may I suggest that before you order you may want to follow along to see how they facilitate my build.

    May I ask for some help in posting some update photos. I used the insert image link to no avail.

    Open an account on imgur.com and upload your pictures there. Then you can use the image link tool here to point to the pictures on imgur.

    Mahalo Jim!

    The best I could do for pics is to provide links using imgur.com as you had suggested, possibly because my OS is Linux Ubutu I not sure.

    I contracted for a all local (Philippine) sourced woods for this moderately priced Tenor Uke build which will include:

    Solid Gmelina top. Florentine Scoop.
    Whitish spruce like colored wood.
    A good bass response and a friendly overall tone.
    Solid Spalted Mango sides and back.
    Figured Mango wood.
    Mellow overall tone similar to Koa.
    Slotted Headstock.
    Ebony Fret board and Bridge.
    Bone Nut and Saddle.
    Radiused fret board (12")
    Beveled armrest.
    Embellished with Ebony Binding and white and tan Perfling.
    Gloss finish with satin Neck.
    Round Abalone Rosette.

    Anyway for those that maybe interested, I have posted a link below for the wood that will
    be used for the sides and back.
    Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to show you the top.

    The builder sent me a sample of the top tone wood today for me to share.
    So here it is......

    The color appears to be a little on the gray side but usually this wood should look more like spruce.
    I will have to find out. Maybe a bad picture.
