Ideal for kids and adults of all ages.

This unique little instrument is created using mostly recycled timber from various species of tree. Many of the Ukulele 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 Ukulele’s pick-ups are hand scatter wound on traditional fiberboard flatwork bobbins, and wax potted – meaning they are soaked in hot bees wax – giving them a distinctive tone with no unwanted feedback. Controls are pickup selector, volume and tone knobs.

The woodwork is hand-routed, sanded and spray – painted in-house as well.

The scale length is tenor 17″. The total size is 690 x 230 x 55 mm.

This ukulele is a pure electric solid body ukulele, that must be played through a guitar amplifier. It has a great 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.
