So after my first ukulele, which became a lefty, because I made a routing  error ( control cavity on the wrong side of the back ! )
I have built a right handed one, with a different scale length (16" instead of 15" on the previous build )
I settled for 009-011-013-026w for string gauge.

Looks great! Love the color and the overall shape of it. Particularly the end of the fretboard and the pickup mount. Did you make that mount or buy it?
