Australian Uke

If it's not a guitar or a bass guitar discussion, and it's got strings, put it here.

Australian Uke

Hi guys. This is my first post here. Just recently finished my first instrument. It's a tenor uke. Mahogany neck, sapelli fingerboard, plywood(!) body. Took about 40 hours to complete and sounds sweet. Very happy with it...Thinking about the next,improved upon version already! :D

Welcome to the Forum, Marcus! How about a bigger picture that we can actually see?

Looks pretty cool Marcus. I like the peghead.

I like the body shape. Did you have to steam bend the plywood? How did that work out?
