Looking over the net I became interested in Tahitian style ukuleles. Their didn’t seem to be any build projects, so I designed my own 8 stringer. unlike the usual gCEA tuning, the Tahitian style ukes have a octave higher c and e – really making for a bright sound.
My version is built from Acacia and in concert scale length.
Some build images:

This is a beautiful uke! I’m attempting to build a soprano in the shape of a turtle and this has given me a few ideas.
