Australian Uke

Post by marcus eyre »

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

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?
