“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
Our ukulele kits contain all the same high-end materials as our guitar kits - 1st grade back and side sets, AAA soundboards and 1st grade fingerboards and bridges. The kit components are pre-selected and no substitutions are possible. We haven't added all the bells and whistles (rosette material, purflings, position markers, inlay) in order to keep the costs down, but you can add these yourselves and make your ukulele as simple or complex as you desire.
The kit does not include a plan. We recommend either the soprano (PL51), concert (PL62) or tenor (PL61) plan. The kit materials will work for all 3 sizes. These plans have either a dovetail or Spanish heel. They can easily be modified to accept a straight bolt-on neck. If you make this conversion, don't forget your bolt-on inserts.
