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

Oak and Cedar Concert Ukulele

Postby Brett Sloma » Thu Dec 12, 2019 1:28 pm

This is my fifth ukulele. 5 completed this year. https://longfellowguitaranduke.wordpress.com/2019/12/12/76/

Oak back, sides, and neck, White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) top. Granadillo fingerboard and bridge. This has an X braced top, and solid linings.

I'd have to say this uke is the best sounding I've made so far (it's close). It's bright and sweet, loud, rich, and just really nice.

I'm very pleasantly surprised how nice an instrument made with Oak can sound!


Thanks for stopping by.

That looks great! That is a nice looking set of oak and it goes well with the tortoiseshell.

Take care of your feet and your feet will take care of you.
