I’ve made quite a few solid body electric ukuleles. One of the most common questions about them is: Can you make plans for them??
My answer (until today) was: Well, they are complicated enough that it is hard to distill the process into a step-by-step plan.
Some of my electric ukuleles. Which one is your favorite?
After a lot of planning and thinking, I can finally release the plans to this electric ukulele. I tried to make the design as simple as possible. This ukulele can be made without a router, and it doesn’t have an angled headstock. The slot in the headstock provides the needed downward string angle. I opted to not have an onboard volume control. The volume is controlled on the the amplifier.
These plans, just like my other ones, can be modified to suit individual tastes. Some fun alterations to try would be having a different body shape, or adding volume control.
After you build your own, share your creation with me.
