This spring I have been working with two very different ukulele based instruments: A concert Ukulele with redwood top and flamed maple back/sides and a U-bass with sapele/maple/walnut body with koa top and maple neck. Both are now finished with eye and ear pleasing results! Thanks Olavi and Miika! Next up: Summer vacation!
|Necks got Tru Oil finish. Bodies french polish|
|Short of one string that I broke |
accidentally before tuning.
|The U-bass truly is tiny! Yet it plays in the actual bass register. |
Polyurethane string magic!
|The player with his bass, this time with |
Aquila Thunder Red strings.
|The bass is equipped with L.R.Baggs under saddle pickup |
and active electronics
|The tiny headstock barely fits the tuning machines.|
|Bridge and fingerboard are ebony. The cocobolo binding |
kind of complements the color scheme. Well picked, Olavi!
|BGM Electronics Elevation system |
with 2 discs installed inside
