Thread: Built my second electric ukulele!

  1. #1

    Default Built my second electric ukulele!

    I was asked by a fundraiser called the relay for life, a cancer awareness event, to build an electric ukulele for them to auction off after they saw my first one. Here are the results!

    I followed a fellow forum member, who has a website called circuits and strings (http://circuitsandstrings.wordpress.com/). This uke is made from a cherry body and neck, ebony fretboard, and paua shell dots. It is a tenor with a classical style head stock, single coil pick up, and through-body strings. I used a natural stain for the cherry, and a polycrylic for the finish. I enjoyed building, and I'm happy someone asked me to do it!

    Another great uke. Good job for donating it for a good cause.

    Thanks! The last two have been for charities, I think it's time I build one for myself I'm going to try using a single piece instead of two ply, and use a router. Then I'll just put up a cover of a thin wood to hide the circuitry.

    Looks sweet. I especially like how the headstock echoes one of the curves on the cut outs.
