“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 entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill 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......”

Soprano ukulele neck, pre-drilled with one hole, no heel



Pre-drilled ukulele neck, WNUKEK
If you order our pre-carved soprano ukulele neck to use in conjunction with the PL51 soprano ukulele plan, be aware of the following: The PL51 plan features a ukulele with 13.5" scale and the pre-carved neck that we offer is a 13.875" scale neck. Therefore, you will need to adjust the placement of your bridge to achieve proper intonation. Be sure that you place the bridge (and bridge plate) according to the 13.875" scale length on your uke and not according the placement shown on the plan!

The bolt-on ukulele neck is a professional quality, precision machined neck made from 1st grade, genuine Mahogany. Often ukes are held on with a simple glued butt joint, but we offer ours with a (single) bolt-on feature, as found on some higher end ukuleles. Ukuleles don't typically use a truss rod as there is not enough string tension to warrant one.
