    Default The Ukulele construction manual first copies

    The first copies The Ukulele have arrived from the printer and are now available, at least in Australia, to anyone who would like to purchase a copy. Go to www.mcdonaldstrings.com/ukulelebook.html to order either a hard copy or an ePub version.

    It won't be available in the US or Canada for another few weeks, but you can pre-order a copy on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Ukulele-Illustra ... 385&sr=8-1
    For those in Europe Amazon will probably be the best way to get a copy.

    I like this and will probably pre order one. Is there anywhere some peeks into what is inside the book?

    Have bought this as a zip file and will have fun exploring it over the next few days/weeks. Thanks.

    On reading the blurb under the pictures of the ukes, I noticed one of the tenors is a "23 fret to the body" style, which I found intriguing. On counting the frets to the body I was disappointed to find there were only 12 - only half of what was promised. My question is this: "Is this an aspirational goal, blatantly misleading advertising or merely a slip of the digits?"
    My next question is "Do I now get a discount?"

    A typo? I suspect.

    Blatantly misleading advertising I would think. I just knew someone would find a typo that I and several other people had missed. Where in the ePub?

    Love that opening chapter on the island style build! edit - it was a little bit confusing figuring out how to download it to my iPad but that's done and it looks like a great book. Iím really looking forward to making an island style with rope binding.
