The tension on eachfriction tunercan be adjusted by tightening or loosing the screw on the top of the tuner. The bridge, also made of sheesham rosewood incorporates a genuine bone saddle. An end-pin strap button is standard. Overall size: 26.75 x 9 x 4.75 inches. The Baroq-uleles come in 3 sizes including Soprano, Concert and Tenor.

In addition to the three sizes, the Baroq-ulele™ is also available with 3 types of woods for the back: sheesham rosewood, lacewood (chenar) or variegated with alternating staves of rosewood and lacewood.
