"Les Paul Uke. Makeover".

mddwoody, 23.03.2014
The: "Harley Benton UK-L100 VS Soprano Ukulele" has a Les Paul style, cutaway body, with trapeze pearloide inlays along the neck, & a high gloss Vintage Sunburst finish. When it arrived I was quite pleased with what I saw, the finish was done nicely, & the neck inlays were also accurately cut & inserted. There were a couple of discrepancies between the description & pictures in the listing & the instrument I received. It didn't have the vintage style, tulip machine head buttons (it had small oval, cream plastic ones), & it didn't have a strap pin on it. Sound quality was not to bad, but would definitely be improved by fitting Martin Fluorocarbon strings which I prefer. As I was fitting a strap I fitted a strap pin, a word of warning here, because there is no timber reinforcement inside the body to screw into, I had to fit one on a plate with 3 screws. It seems firm enough but had I known before I started drilling, it would probably have been better to fit the type of strap that hooks into the sound hole.

I decided to give the uke. a makeover to enhance it's Les Paul look, which I did as follows. First of all I enlarged an image of a Les Paul style guitar body, to a similar size of the uke. body. I then made templates of the the pickups, pickguard, & Treble/Tone switch plate. I removed the area of the neck pickup template that covered the sound hole, so it wouldn't muffle the sound. Then using 3mm. thick, black ABS sheet with a gold face, I had the template shape cut out, & detailing engraved on top so the black showed through the gold for effect. Then using cream faced black ABS I had the pickguard & Treble/Tone switch plate cut out & engraved in the same way. Finally I made a scale template of a Les Paul truss rod plate made, & using white ABS faced with black had a truss rod plate cut & engraved. I pushed a roof felt tack through the hole in the middle of the switch plate & pushed a real switch tip onto it. All the plates were now ready, so using a good quality double sided tape, I fitted all the plates into the correct positions on the body & headstock of the ukulele. Finally I glued 4 Telecaster, black plastic barrel switch tips onto the body to look like the control knobs on a Les Paul guitar.

All-in-all this was a worthwhile project on a reasonably priced & sounding ukulele. I hope you found it interesting & maybe inspire you to give one of these ukes a "Les Paul Makeover". Pleasant Strumming.

A little strong boy!

Marcos leonn, 07.12.2014
I bought this little ukulele, to give my 4 year old son. I fell in love with it this ukulele has a wonderful sound, I did not expect a ukulele with a cheap price with so good quality.
1. colors are well configured and well painted excellent finish.
2. the sound is soft and nice timbre
3. the tuning peg machine heads are greate and also soft.

In the end I just take this ukulele me, and bought the harmonica for my son.

I really indicate the purchase of the ukulele harley benton UK-L100 best deal.

thank you thomann team for the best stuff and best deal always.

Best regards to all there

Marcos l.
