    Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN UKULELE KIT:

    Fun and pretty easy DIY Ukulele kit. Chinese directions included impossible dimensions in the directions, but it worked out fine.
    String height above the frets is the most critical dimensions.
    All in all a pretty nice little Uke!

      Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN UKULELE KIT:

      Great gift for an upcoming artist with innate musical tendencies! bought this as a New Years Eve artist's project for neice who loved the idea, the time together with her Grandfather building it and painting it.. and of course the fact that it was to be a true musical instrument to accompany her and be a keepsake. No indication with package itself of the difference in strings.. this would be a key update to make verbally on the packaging to get the tuning right the first time as there is no extra sting in the box. Love it if it is truly tune-able and...one came cracked on front but slight and was covered with paint by an enthusiastic artist.
      Great project !

          This is a great gift for my musician son, he has not put it together yet so I am not sure how it will hold up, but its a fun idea. Just wish it would have come with simple things like sandpaper, glue etc.

            A great gift which encourages creativity and creates an activity for a child to do with an adult--something today's child needs desperately.

              I gave this to my boss who plays guitar. He loved it! He's going to have his grandkids decorate it over the holidays. I expect to hear beautiful music coming from his office in 2015.

              Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN UKULELE KIT:

              Purchased this for my husband for both his birthday and a before/after project for upcoming hip replacement surgery. I was so excited to find and give it to him: SO PERFECT as he loves both woodworking & "relearning" to play the guitar.

              He was THRILLED ~ like a little kid ~ and even said it was the best, most thoughtful gift he'd ever received! He had so much fun with idea of building HIS own very personalized ukelele. He ordered some very special stickers/decals from an artist in Japan and picked out a stain he loved. He lovingly/ carefully tried patiently to assemble ~ but certain parts (the head/neck and the bridge) seemed somehow faulty and/or just did not fit properly ~ and ultimately broke loose and the everything became a tangled mess.

              He was SO looking forward to learning to play it during his recovery, but instead felt down about his failure to make it work. I regret that I didn't return it and request a new one. I still believe if the parts fit properly, this is a potentially an all-around WONDERFUL product/concept and gift.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The service/ delivery was OUTSTANDING. Since I discovered it only a few days before the birthday, I just assumed I would give it to him a little late ~ but it arrived so promptly and carefully packed in just two and a half days (standard shipping) and I was THRILLED!

                  This is the perfect Christmas gift for my twenty-something artist/ musician nephew...it can't miss! Even if, as an instrument, it's a dud, he can still use it to express himself through the art aspect of it! He loves the ukulele, so I don't think I can go wrong with this choice! Great idea & the perfect gift for the "not-so-easy-to-buy-for" artist!
