Homemade Guitalele

Difficulty: Intermediate

Cost: $$

This was a project that didn’t take a whole lot of time.  Having the neck and body already done really made this project go fast.

The neck was from a cheap kid’s guitar, and the body was from a grizzly kit.

I attached the neck with glue and a dowel.

I got an undrilled ukulele bridge from StewMac.  The fretboard is made of purpleheart.

I strung it up with a light set of classical guitar strings.
