Mahogany Soprano Kit Project Uke!
Kits available here

We had some fun with one of these soprano kits. First we added some binding and real shell marker dots. The peg tuners were replaced with Gotoh machine tuners. Koa w/Corian® was added to the headstock. The neck-to-body connection was reinforced with a spline and a koa w/Corian® detail was added to the heel. The breadfruit leaf design was scribed onto the soundboard and covers the lower portion of the fretboard. We finished with a new set of Hilo strings.
