Two new builds Finished Mal(UK)
My latest builds.Mal(UK)
Here are a couple of tenor builds I've done in the last few months. I was really pleased with learning how to bend wood and getting more into true lutherie.
This one is made of bloodwood with spruce soundboard, maple neck and wenge fretboard and bridge. The rosette is bloodwood, maple and ebony:
This one has walnut sides with lacewood top and back. Again using maple neck with wenge fretboard and bridge. The bindings were my first attempt, using a pearl white acrylic:
I'm finishing up another right now that has cherry sides and back with spruce soundboard, mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard and bridge and dual piezos. I'll post photos when it's done.
Here are two that I've built.
The first is a tenor (my first CBUke). The second is a "contra" which is on a 21.5" scale, tuned GCEA (low G) and down an octave. Strings are the EADG from a classical guitar set.
Neck-through on both ukes. The neck material came from an old oak vanity I replaced during a remodel.
Both awesome Lane!
Headstock game STRONG!
