Ukulele Construction Tip:
Ukuleles are normally made of laminated wood or solid wood. Cheaper ukuleles are generally made from plywood or laminate woods or some even made by plastic which called ukulele toys, in some cases with a soundboard of a tonewood such as spruce, sapele,mahogany ect. More expensive ukuleles are made of solid hardwoods such as Koa wood, rosewood ect. The traditionally preferred wood for ukuleles is acacia koa,which is including very beautiful sound function.
Typically, ukuleles have a figure-eight body shape similar to that of a small acoustic guitar. They are also often seen in non-standard shapes, such as cutaway shape and an oval, usually called a "pineapple" ukulele, invented by the Kamaka Ukulele company, or a boat-paddle shape, and occasionally a square shape, often made out of an old wooden cigar box.
These instruments usually have four strings; some strings may be paired in courses, giving the instrument a total of six or eight strings (primarily for greater strumming volume.) The strings themselves were originally made of catgut. Modern ukuleles use nylon polymer strings, with many variations in the material, such as fluorocarbon, aluminium (as winding on lower pitched strings), and Nylgut.
Instruments with 6 or 8 strings in four courses are often called taropatches, or taropatch ukuleles. They were once common in a concert size, but now the tenor size is more common for six-string taropatch ukuleles. The six string, four course version, has two single and two double courses, and is sometimes called a Lili'u, though this name also applies to the eight-string version. Eight-string baritone taropatches exist, and, 5-string tenors have also been made
