Note the solid (rather than kerfed) lining -- this gives the rim excellent stability, strength, and sustain, as well as a solid gluing surface.
Dave has been busy finishing these 3 baritone Ukes
Putting in frets
Acacia wood, fitting fret board before frets
1/11/17 This week, the three baritone ukuleles had their tops glued to sides! All three ring nicely & feel really solid, too. Note the solid lining & X-bracing on the cedar baritone uke.
