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.

This is a solid body baritone 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.

Thats actually the Jazzmistress but it sounds the same as the Ocelot, the Jazzmistress has a different scratchplate arrangement and does not include the phase inversion switch.
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
