This African Mahogany ukulele kit is crafted inside and out with immaculate precision at Specimen in Chicago, Illinois.

The pickup is custom wound by Lindy Fralin on special custom made Specimen bobbins. The middle position dog ear single coil pickup is reminiscent of a 60’s era single pickup ES330 Gibson which is my favorite production instrument in the world.

You’ll find a beautifully fit mortice and tenon set neck joint. The fit and finish of the kit’s parts are superb.

All of my kits come with step by step instructions and all of the parts you will need.

And, of course there are custom options!

Get your kit started in the CSGM Acoustic Making Weekend Course or in an upcoming Acoustic Making Summer Camp!
