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.

Fun kit. But pay attention to details.

By

Verified Buyer


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.

Great for learning and first ukulele build.

I wanted to try building a ukulele. I signed up for a course two times and was put on a waiting list both times. I decided to go the route of buying a kit and using the StewMac instructional video. The quality of the kit was better than expected and I am having fun with the build. I am learning the basics at a much lower cost. I do have the advantage of detailed woodworking experience restoring wooden canoes. I feel anyone with patience and paying attention to detail can learn to and build a nice ukulele.

StewMac kits make great instruments

Having previously purchased the StewMac Tenor Ukulele Kit, I was eager to kick it up a notch with the StewMac Baritone Ukulele Kit. The construction effort was reduced with the aid of a few StewMac Mini Cam Clamps and the Precision Router Base. I was able to add inlays and eye catching veneers. I found the “How to Build A Ukulele” video lessons with Mr Erlewine great as both a refresher and as a reference to pick up some tips and tricks. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great build experience for first time builder. Looks and sounds great too!

I bought the baritone ukulele kit and was a little intimidated with the instructions. The online video instructions of the build were a huge help and believe it was part of the reason of the excellent results.

All the pieces to the kit seemed to be good quality, though the tuners are a little rough in turning. The instructions were very good, thought the video really helped since this is my first stringed instrument build.

I am a guitar player and could immediately start playing it. It will be a great addition to my other instruments!
