This is our latest plan to build a 14" scale Soprano UKE.
Its very traditional but with some nice and unusual design touches to make it stand out from the crowd!
Would make an excellent first acoustic build.
The instrument has a very sweet balanced tone and projects really well.
I designed it to build for my dear wife Sandra, and she has enjoyed learning to play along to backing tracks and as a duo with me. (you would not want to book us!)
The new pickup range is taking shape. Our aim is to produce different looking and vintage reproduction designs. These will be fitted to our hand built guitars and will be individually hand made by myself. They will sell under the 'Baytone' brand name. We have a page on the website with more details.
The new Minitour 'Venus' is taking shape. This is a new travel guitar made from Korina and Bubinga and featuring a 24" scale and bridge humbucker of unique design and construction with a matching single coil in the neck position.
The body is balanced and elegant with more curves than Marilyn Monroe! Pictures soon.
