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 Baritone-sized instrument is based upon a 480mm 19 inches scale. It features a European spruce soundboard with a four-point rosette design taken from a 17th century lute. The back is a round-back or bowl shape made of staves of sheesham Dalbergia sissoo. The neck is solid sheesham and features a nut width of 36mm 1 7/16 inch with a cattle bone nut. This instrument is outfitted with standard friction ukulele 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 cattle bone saddle. An end-pin strap button is standard. Overall size: 30 x 7.5 w x 4 inches.

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 Baroq-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 Blackwood tuning pegs or standard ukulele friction tuners. All models are sold separately.

Really Love This Instrument
I bought this ukulele for the look, but I have been delighted by its tone and playability. First of all, it sounds and feels more like a small lute than a ukulele. That's what I was hoping for. The quality is top notch. No defects. Well built. Stays in tune. Intonation is good up the neck. It came tuned like a ukulele GCEA low G, but I changed the strings to reentrant dGBE and am really happy with that. It has a strap button and the round back makes a strap helpful. I made one out of a scarf. All in all this is a beautiful instrument and I'm really enjoying it. It's perfect for Renaissance pieces and there are lots of uke TABS available for that.
