Electric Ukulele FAQ

What strings should I use on an Electric Ukulele?

Ones made of metal!

What thickness wood do I need for a solid body ukulele?

Daniel says :- All of my electric uke bodies have been 1.5 inches thick, except for my first telecaster ukulele. That one was 2 inches, which was a little thick. I think 1.5″ to 1.75″ is the sweet spot.

King Uke Asked: The bridge I have is like a classic fixed strat bridge, which feeds through to the back. Am I missing a part? or do I need to do something special to hold the string ends?

Dan H replied: For a string through the body setup, string ferrules are normally used on the back of the body.
