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 Soprano-sized instrument is based upon a 344.5mm (13 9/16 inches) scale. It features a European spruce soundboard with an interlaced rosette design taken from a 16th century vihuela. The back is a round-back or bowl shape made of alternating staves of sheesham rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) and lacewood (Platanus orientalus). The neck is solid sheesham rosewood and features a nut width of 36mm (1 7/16 inch) with a bone nut. This instrument is outfitted with standard friction ukulele tuners. The tension on eachfriction tunercan be adjusted by tightening or loosing the screw on the top of the tuner. The bridge, also made of sheesham rosewood incorporates a genuine bone saddle. Overall size: 22.5 x 7.5 x 3.5 inches. An end-pin strap button is standard. The Baroq-uleles come in 3 sizes including Soprano, Concert and Tenor. 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 three sizes, the Baroq-ulele™ is also available with 3 types of woods for the back: sheesham rosewood, lacewood (chenar) or variegated with alternating staves of rosewood and lacewood.
