Quick vid of my first uke build, 35.5cm scale, Rocky Patel box, piezo + volume. Please excuse poor playing and yep, I just can't find the off button at the end of the vid!

Thanks so much Sammy, I'm just surprised you recognised the song - Ha!! There are some progress pics of this build on my page which show the construction detail a bit clearer and all I added to finish were the machine heads, tarp-eyelet soundholes, brass screw string retainers on tailpiece, the electrics (piezo, volume and jack socket) and carved a hardwood foating bridge. Thanks again and good luck with own build.

Hiya Julian, love the Uke, great job fella. Enjoyed your version of House of the Rising Sun. I was trying so hard to view the build construction as I'm just trying to build my second cigar box ukulele tenor myself. Good luck and let us see some more Uke technique. Nice one. Cheers

Anyone with experience in 1-3-1 tuning?
