In the comments I asked about sizes.  There will be all 4 sizes, Soprano, Tenor, Concert and baritone.


So what size shall we make the Forum Uke, Tenor or Concert?

I'd go for a forum uke too.  I've been cheating on my Larrivee guitars with my Koaloha Pineapple Soprano for far too long.  Time to renew my vows...

An all mahogany concert or soprano would be perfect.  Low bling high quality.

Anyone else?

Would be willing to go either way. (koa or mahogany)  Would prefer low bling to keep the price down as Uke is not my main instrument (always need a chord chart since uke is just so damn different than guitar).

Would definitely prefer Tennor size, but would be willing to go Concert as well.

Who me??  I love koa!  Lots of koa at my place.  Just want to keep it affordable so that everyone can enjoy.  Maybe koa with no bling is the best route.

Great news!!

A Forum uke sounds great......Concert or tenor, Koa or hog, gloss or satin, yes no blings, sounds fantastic.

I wished Larrivee had done this earlier. With the Aussie dollar dropping rapidly against the US, things are a little different. But I'll be watching closely.

Sorry, my phone auto-corrected my post that said "...forum newby...".  Lorry, my first post on this forum  and I fouled it up!

My apologies everyone.

Every Larrivee Uke I have ever seen has had an ebony fingerboard.  Going to rosewood would probably actually raise the cost since I am sure that Larrivee has plenty of ebony that is just a hair too small for a guitar fretboard just sitting there waiting to find a home.

If you have questions ask away and I'll do my best to answer (might be a couple day delay though as it's a very busy time of year). We've designed 4 main body styles Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. Default config is hog on hog, but there will be spruce tops as an option. tenor and baritone are fan braced. They are dressed very similar to 40 series instruments, and the neck carve and heel are from the 40 series as well.
