Blue Haze Cigar Box Ukulele #11. This is a very small box, approx. 6” x 6” x 1.25” deep. Although it is very small, it is very nice solid mahogany and has excellent sound, more sound than many of my larger ones. It is a very old box someone gave me. It is a Soprano scale, 13-9/16”, nut to bridge. Over all just about 21”. It’s just a little cutie but sounds good and is very playable. Cherry neck, open tuners, nickel-silver frets. Plexiglas bridge with a brass rod saddle. Thanks for looking!!

Thanks. It just sounds like a small soprano uke! Pretty good in fact. The box resonates well.

Dennis that is a great looking uke. I still haven’t completed one but I have gotten started. I’m just waiting on some tuning machines to arrive in the mail and I’ll be able to put it all together.

Thanks Zeke. Hope you get your parts soon and you will if you ordered from Gitty, he’s real fast with shipping stuff out. What size/scale are you making?
