Too much neck flex...

Started this discussion. Last reply by JL Feb 19, 2018. 9 Replies

I'm building a new concert scale uke from a CBGitty kit. This time I'm using a dowel glued into the heel/neck block. The problem I'm having is the amount of flex from the neck. For some reason this…Continue

Hey, Richard.   I really like your ukes.   Glad to have you for a nation friend.   I built a couple of sopranos, but they were poor players.   I have a Lanakai concert that I like and play some.

Last Tuesday you commented on my ukulele asking how I stained the back and kept it from getting on the paper trim.  I mentioned Frog Tape.  Here is a website about it and a little video on how it works.  I notice there is a newer product also that is for delicate surfaces.  Might even be better, it is yellow tape.  You can get it at almost any good hardware store, ACE, Walmart, etc.   I have not tried this on a cigar box, bit like I wrote I know it works pretty good, least it did on my kayak.  I will use it next time I build a uke and I want to stain, but save the paper.

Richard, Thanks for the friendship...I like the punch logo on the headstock to looks cool. Good idea.
