Our first Yewkulele from Adrian Lucas- yes, it’s an all Yew Ukulele!
Back sides and top: English yew
Neck: reclaimed South American mahogany
Fingerboard: English laburnum
Bridge: English laburnum
Scale length: 375.8mm
Tuning pegs: Grover Champion
The reason for the very precise scale length figure is that it is a subdivision of a 632mm (small Martin) scale and is very close to the 14” specified for a Concert. This means I can use my 632 scale template to cut the slots starting at fret 9.
What can I say, the Yewkulele is a really comfortable uke, the sound is sweet and mellow without being muddy or indistinct. The hand rubbed oil finish lends an inviting tactile feel to the whole instrument. Absolutely the best for a bit of couch noodling!
