About This Item

Ukulele's are one of the hottest instruments on the market right now, people love them and just can't get enough of them. They make a great place to start if you're a new builder looking for that first project. They're simple, easy and a ton of fun (plus, they sound amazing!)

NEW! Now available in baritone!

No Woodworking Experience Required!
We give you detailed instructions and bracing plans to guide you through each step of the build, from start to finish!

To reduce spring-back and aid stability the back and sides are made from high quality mahogany laminates—this will go a long way to ensuring your first build is painless and enjoyable. Available in soprano, concert, tenor, and now baritone sizes.

New! Baritone ukes are tuned just like a guitar
Build an instrument you can play today! If you are new to uke but play guitar, you can play this baritone right out of the box! Because it's tuned the same as the top 4 strings of your guitar—D, G, B, E, you already know how to play it! You'll be rocking on this little guy as soon as you've strung it up. And it makes a great first instrument for a child or new player.

Best prep for more.

Can't figure out how to add a half star, but it should get 4 and a half. I learned a helluva lot in the process, and now plan to continue building - solid wood next! Most of the issues I encountered were of my own doing - not because of the materials or the instructions. I can take my build to any uke club and proudly play it and brag on having built it. While I think that once the sides were assembled they gave different dimensions on top and bottom - but 1) all that meant was more sanding, and 2) it's just what I think and I can't verify. I will check in the future. But a very satisfying, worthwhile project!

Excellent Kit!

This is my first time building a ukulele from a kit. Very easy to follow instructions and quality materials. I managed to complete the ukulele in a week working on it an hour or so a night. I would definitely recommend this for first time builders.

First kit

By

Verified Buyer


I shopped around and got this kit because it seemed like a fun, easy way to get into building. StewMac online videos and support really help. I watched them first and prepared by getting some extra supplies. (Small workbench, clamps, clips, files) So far I have put together the body. The sides, top, and back fit together well. I am waiting on a new neck since the one I got was off cut. Getting a replacement was as easy as sending in some pics. The only other thing I noticed is the slot for the G is cut shallow on the pre slotted nut too. Maybe a reason to get a saw and files?

Fun kit. But pay attention to details.

Just finished, strung, and tuned up my tenor uke kit. It's a cool little instrument. But it isn't as easy to build as I thought. It doesn't build itself. You need to pay close attention to getting the parts absolutely perfectly placed. That can be difficult when gluing, things have a tendency to move. For example, the linings should be precisely flush to the edge of the sides. This is hard to do unless you take care. There are other things, just take your time and pay attention. Another nit pick. I bought Waverly friction tuners to substitute for the geared tuners supplied. I just don't like the look of the geared tuners. But the holes in the headstock are too big for the Waverlys and, at least on my kit, they were a weird size, .420". So I turned and fitted a hardwood pen blank to fill the holes so I could redrill them to 3/16" for the Waverlys. Since the kit already requires drilling for the neck dowels, there isn't any reason the tuner holes need to be pre-drilled. Let the customer choose the tuners and drill accordingly.

All that said, I'm about ready to order another kit, and knowing what I know now, I'll do a much better job the second time. PLUS, I have all the tools and setup. Lots of fun to build.

I took my time on this...my first completion (second start...I took a step back from your mando kit...to "go to school" ...practising recon stone inlay, engraving and binding. Great technical support on your part...videos, manual, email consultations. I even built a mini version of the Erlewine Fred Flintstone bridge positioning jig...great peace of mind for the first-time bridge gluer...you should work that in to your next revision of the uke kit instructions. All octaves sounding reasonably good before committing to glue. Your wish list icon also provided inspiration...thanks!

I bought this to try and work it as far as I can. It is very similar to putting together a guitar.
