Guitalele built of poplar. Despite all the experts online saying that poplar isn’t a good “tonewood”, it has a rich deep sound, better than the storebought Yamaha guitalele I own. I built it out of boredom basically. It has a soundboard transducer mounted inside so I can amplify it if I want to. If you know much about guitars, you can see that borrowed (ripped off) the lines of a very famous American guitar company. Over all, it has good intonation and very warm sound with plenty of natural volume. It’s fully acoustic and as I said earlier, made of poplar bought at Home Depot. Being a guitar/ukulele hybrid, parts aren’t really available for making such an instrument so everything had to be handmade from the rosewood bridge to the fretboard. I think next I may make a baritone uke.
