"The amp is plenty enough power for a guitar. Guitar's with passive electronics work on milliamps, so a 9volt aamp is plenty of power.  Could be that the wires for the guitar hook up are reversed, something could be defective in that part…"

I'm so glad you set up a uke group...great!
I think ukes are a great first instrument to build and so much fun to play.
I'm dying to get nr.2 done. So many projects and only so much time but
i'm hoping to get it done within two weeks.
I'll post it of course when it's ready.
Bye Andy, Have Fun,
Shelley.

Hey Andy,
Nice looking ukes... you'll love making a dulcimer.
And you're right, music just sort of falls right out of them....
later man....
