Skip the queue – it’s ready to ship!
Made from Reclaimed Old-Growth Douglas Fir. Reclaimed from houses that are at least 100 years old, this timber has all the same benfits as torrefied timber. The wood has a richer sound with a fuller tone and greater dynamic range, more body and volume than new timber. It is also very resistant to atmospheric changes.
Finished in Odies Oil and waxed.
Two single coil pickups.
Three way selector switch with volume and tone controls for a wide variety of tonal effects easily controlled from the ukulele itself.
Fitted with a rugged, fully functional brass block tremelo.
Kiaat neck with a Wenge fretboard and bone coloured resin dot markers.
This tenor solid body electric ukulele is carefully set-up with a comfortable low action, so that its ready to rock, straight out of the box!
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 finished, sanded and spray – painted in-house as well.
The total size is 780 x 275 x 55 mm.
Padded gig-bag is included.

This is a solid body tenor electric ukulele with a unique sound that lends itself to being played with over-drive and other standard electric guitar effects. As such it needs to be played through a guitar amplifier.

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
