First tenor uke












My first (more on the way) completed tenor (17" VSL) designed with the silhouette of a medieval citole in mind.
Mostly black walnut for the back, with a strip of ipe in the center, and the neck. The sides are also black walnut, but then I got hold of that gorgeous maple veneer and was tempted to use it, so I glued it onto the walnut (not without various mishaps along the way) and the headstock. Zebrawood for the fretboard and bridge.
