Based on the round-back guitar found in Germany, the Baroq-uleles™ are one of the most option-rich lines of instruments we carry.
This Tenor-sized instrument is based upon a 430mm (17 inches) scale. It features a European spruce soundboard with an interlaced rosette design taken from a 16th century vihuela. The round-back or bowl shape is made of staves of Sheesham (Indian Rosewood). The neck is also solid sheesham and features a nut of genuine bone with a width of 37mm (1.5 Inches). This instrument is outfitted with standard ukulele friction tuners. The tension on each friction tuner can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the screw on the top of the tuner. The bridge, also made of sheesham, incorporates a genuine bone saddle. An end-pin strap button is standard.
Overall size is approximately: 26.75 x 9 x 4.75 inches.
Actual instrument weight is approximately 1.1 lbs.
The Baroq-uleles™ come in 4 sizes including Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone. Each size is graced with its own unique rosette design, each of which is taken from museum examples from the 16th and 17th centuries.
In addition to the four sizes, the Baroque-ulele™ is also available with 3 types of woods for the back: sheesham, lacewood (chenar) or variegated with alternating staves of sheesham and lacewood. Finally, ensuring that you will find an instrument that best fits your needs, these instruments are also available with two types of tuning keys: Baroque-style ebony tuning pegs or standard ukulele friction tuners.
