    Hi- I’m having a great time building this! I also have a larger tin, and was wondering how I should change the neck dimensions for a tenor version? I can use an online calculator for the frets, but I’m not sure how much longer the wood cuts should be. Thanks!

    Hi, what do you use for the zero fret on the Altoids uke, & how much higher than the other frets should it stand?

      You can actually use the same size of fret wire for the zero fret. But lately I’ve used bass fret wire for the zero fret and medium/medium wire for the rest.

    What would an acoustic ukulele with steel strings look like. Would it have to use a bridge that has bridge pins?
