Nylon stringed instruments


Tenor ukuleles

My tenor ululeles have a 17" scale length and use a fan bracing. I can make it with a pinned bridge or a tie on bridge. Most use Gotoh open gear tuning machines.

This example has Koa back and sides and an Adirondack spruce soundboard, Bloodwood binding and rosette,

Mahogany Neck and Ebony Fingerboard.

With its warm soft tones, the sound of nylon strings has captured the imagination of great musicians by their remarkable ability of projecting passion in all of its nuances. I have chosen a design that is respected by great players of many generations. It uses a traditional fan bracing and time honored methods of construction, including the use of hide glue and the process of hand bending of the sides and linings.
