My friend and I are trying to make an ukulele for a school project and the only thing we haven't been able to figure out is how to space the frets and what not. We've done google searches and stuff and we just can't anything to do it. So if anybody knows any links or anything about it help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

Are you making a Tenor, Soprano, or Baritone? That makes a HUGE difference here.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass

well, what scale length are you making it? the 12th fret is exactly halfway. im sure you could find something online about scale length, ill go check.

ive been playing my uke constantly for the past two days. theyre so much fun for jazz.

wiki:
Ukulele:

* Baritone ukulele: 20.1 in (51 cm)
* Concert ukulele: 14.75 in (37 cm)
* Soprano ukulele: 13.6 in (35 cm)
* Tenor ukulele: 17 in (43 cm)

btw, soprano is the only way to go.

buy a cheap one, and take the neck off. if it doesn't look homemade, then beat it up until it does.

You could use the ol' method of multiplying the scale length by 17:18, placing a fret there and multiplying the remaining length by 17:18 and so on.

Or, you could use the 'modern' method of dividing remaining scale length by 2^(1:12) for the remaining length after the next fret. Anything between 2^(1:12) and 18:17 would give acceptable results, too.

I see ukuleles in guitar stores all the time. They even make flying V ukes.
