Ocelot electric ukulele. Tenor scale length 17″. It features two single coil pickups, a pickup selector and a phase inversion switch.
Metallic Lake Placid Blue, Mint scratchplate, maple neck with bound Wenge fretboard and abalone (perlemoen) block inlays.
Ideal for kids and adults of all ages.
Recycled timber body. Many of the parts are created in-house from scratch, eg the bridge control plate, pickups and the neck. The only outsourced parts are the electronics and the machine-heads.
The pick-ups are hand scatter wound and wax potted – meaning they are soaked in hot bees wax – giving them a distinctive tone with no unwanted feedback.
The woodwork is hand-routed, sanded and spray – painted in-house as well.
The total size is 670 x 230 x 55 mm.
This is a pure electric solid body ukulele with a unique sound that lends itself to being played with over-drive and other standard electric guitar effects.
Strings are regular electric guitar strings. You can use a set of 11’s and add a 13 for a high g or use the fourth string from the set for a low G. You can use thinner strings but the tuning stability becomes less manageable with thinner strings. Thicker strings are also ok. 12’s give a tight feel but 13’s are a bit too stiff. It comes down to personal preference
