I have to say that the way this came out is beyond my wildest hopes. I’m REALLY pleased with it.
It is surprisingly resonant, and seems to play nicely in tune. I haven’t found any dead or ‘off’ notes yet. It sounds just like an acoustic ukulele when it’s plugged into a clean amp, but of course you can crank the gain up and play the top 3 strings like a guitar – that high pitched 4th string catches me out though.
I will see if I can record some sound clips
Thanks and congratulations to anyone who has made it this far through my ramblings.
(Note to self: Must clean the paint off the end of that binding…)
Even my glue and sawdust filler came out OK. I think I got off lightly for my inattention!
