Solid Wood Humidity and Shape
Elizabeth M — Jan 28, 2015 09:18PM HST
Is it possible for humidity to cause a solid wood ukulele or any ukulele to have a curved back? Or did it come that way? I've seen ukuleles with a swollen top and neck before but I'm not sure about the back... I tried to look up pictures but was unable to find any.

Humidity can cause wood to swell up and create a slight curve, but sometimes specific instruments come built like that for added volume and tone.
