Travel Ukulele

Difficulty: Advanced

Cost: $$

I really love making compact travel ukuleles. In fact, if there is someone that has made more varieties of travel ukuleles than me, I’d love to get to know them. 🙂

Here’s another travel ukulele that I built. It’s concert size made with a hunk of maple.

The friction tuners have white buttons. The wraparound for the strings is chrome along with most of the other hardware.

Even with a scale length of 15 inches, the overall length of this uke is right around 20 inches. It’s small and sturdy; perfect for travel.

Here it is with a travel ukulele I built back in 2012.

    I’ve made a travel guitalele by modifying the design of a travel guitalele which is why the upcoming image is similar in appearance. I’ve seen them at guitar center.

    You said woodwinds are more complicated than ukuleles because the plans for woodwinds aren’t upgraded.
