This thinline baritone ukulele is created using mostly recycled timber from various species. Many of the Ukulele parts are created in-house, from scratch. For example, the bridge control plate, the neck plate and other mounting plates which are laser cut stainless steel. 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. As with most of our processes the pickups are hand made in-house.
Controls are pickup selector, volume and tone knobs.
The woodwork is hand-routed, sanded and spray-painted in-house as well.

This ukulele is a pure electric semi-hollow ukulele. So a guitar amplifier will be needed. 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. Thicker strings are also ok. 12’s give a tight feel but 13’s are a bit too stiff. In conclusion it comes down to personal preference and play style.
