Since its so quite I thought Id light a fire under the guys who build using non conventional techniques. Anybody doing double sides? double tops? fan frets? cantilevered fretboards....come on what about kasha stuff..I know that some of you are big kasha fans lets hear more about it some differences..some theories..stiff sides floppy sides stiff back floppy back......x bracing ukes? throw out some random stuff lets get this place hopping!

Zak, I haven't strayed very far from the path, but I have used my own bridge design with bridge pins.  I also will be installing MISI "battery-less" preamp with Baggs pickup under the saddle of my next uke.  I designed a bridge for that.  You can see it at my site likekestrings.com under journal.

Hi,

I just joined the forum and ran across this thread. I've completed three ukes so far. All are my designs and are testbeds for some non-traditional building methods. I decided to go this route to answer some questions I have and to get my building chops up.

I have some beautiful Mango and Koa that will become tradition style ukes, but right now I want to push the envelope.

I put photo essays of each on my website.

Leroy:
Like any winey, nonproducer I will try to protect my ego by asking, "How do they sound". (they look beautiful)
That pineapple tenor is still in the fantasy-factory for me.

How do they sound?
