I came up with this by looking at All the parts and hardware on Gitty.com. I built the Gitty uke kit, and now I got the bug! I have built 2 traditional ukes, and thought I could do enough right things that this project would work out. I used 1"x2" oak neck and tail blocks. I also braced the sides. I used an oak tenor uke neck, stained onyx black, with rosewood fretboard and bridge. Hand shaped bone nut and saddle. The grommets are perfect, and right over the sweet spot. The pick up and harness worked great. The box corners look even better than I imagined. I just buffed a bit of carnuba wax over it, and lemon oil on the fretboard. I also gutted a danelectro honeytone amp and installed it in a d'jango box. Only used a drill and a screwdriver (that's the spirit, right?) The handle made it perfect. The piece stays in tune, sounds better than I imagined, and is now my daily-driver. Cant wait to start a new project!
