    Default Next on the cards- Selmer/Maccaferri style uke

    Sorting out my next build- a Maccaferri style uke.
    For comparison- pic shows Tenor, Maccaferri plan, Concert.

    Macc body is 12" long (like a tenor) and 10" wide (like a baritone).

    Indian Rosewood back/sides and spruce top with 5 fans, (Which will be radial, not ladder braced like those shown in this scaled down guitar plan).

    Plus, a cool book a mate gave me

    After I saw your post....... played with this a little, while I was away from the shop this afternoon. We don't have your guitar model shown drawn but we have the other style........ Be glad to play with this a little more and can give you a little more detail/dimensions if this will help.

    Blessings,

    Kevin

    One of the best sounding Tony Graziano ukes I've played was a SelMac style tenor. It sounded just fantastic.
