This project was to build a custom electric Ukulele for my wife’s birthday. Here name os Karen hence the ‘K’ design.

I cheated a bit with a ready-made neck and fretboard but the main body was built using off the shelf pine from our local DIY store.

It’s a very creative and interesting instrument. Nice work.
