The Rest Of The Build

Tuners:  Gotoh 501 super mini-ukulele in cosmo black and black vintage tuners.  You can have your Schaller’s and Waverly’s, this is one of the finest tuners in the market.  They are freak’n buttery smooth.   These tuners will be a standard on my bari’s from now on (providing I can get them) and also on some tenors.  I’m not knocking my standard Gotoh UPT though as they are still my fave uke tuner.

Strings:  Oasis Baritone linear with wound D/G.

Nut and Saddle:  stained unbleached bone.

Case:  Crossrock ABS.


I love, love, love the sound of these instruments.  I need one for myself but I only have one mold and it’s been busy most of the year.   These instruments have almost a full sized tenor guitar sound–only with nylon strings. This will now be my standard baritone shape and size so I think I’ll just throw my  old and smaller standard baritone mold away.  It also just barely squeezes into a Crossrock baritone case–aaargh!  Any bigger then I’d have to have a custom or maybe small guitar case.  Just Another Big Baritone Ukulele ?  I’ll let you make the final decision.
