- Our Master Luthier's Choice Ukulele -
We crafted this one to be simple yet exquisite in every detail. You don't need to be flashy when you have the finest quality of materials. All materials and design were specifically selected to bring out the sweet, crisp, and warm tone to this instrument. As a solid koa wood instrument, the tone will open up and mature with age, providing a incredible mid range tone and lovely sustain.
This is a hand-crafted all solid top, back and sides Hawaiian koa ukulele. The SKC/T1's visual depth and complexity is truly amazing, and is complimented with gorgeous solid maple binding, which adds a refined look and feel. The ease of playability with the thin neck and body is incredible. We have given this ukulele the title of our Master Luthier's Choice ukulele, as its his favorite in our line.

No case. If you need one send us a message and we will see if we have anything in stock for an extra fee
The tenor version has a slightly thinner body and no binding on the back like the concert version.
Also, we carry Oasis humidifiers. If you live in a dry climate, its very important to keep your instruments (especially the solid wood ukuleles), humidified to prevent warping and cracking.
Our resonator ukuleles have been one of our best-selling ukuleles ever since we opened shop. They offer a very sweet unique and robustly resonate tone. These have that gorgeous wood grain coupled with that distinct chrome plated resonator which offers one of the coolest looking ukulele options on the market. A perfect addition to your ukulele arsenal. We offer these in three wood options, but the tone is similar in each as the resonator cone carries most of the tonal qualities. These are inspected and set up before shipment.

Not a single one of these is exactly the same as another. That's the beauty of spalted maple. If you want to hold something completely unique with a vibrant and balanced tone, you are going to want to make this your go to ukulele. These come with solid maple binding, walnut fingerboard, and a compensated bridge to bring great intonation. Some customers have mentioned that they added fluorocarbon strings and it rocked the sound even further! Order today, as we can't seem to keep these in stock long before selling out.

If you need a fantastic ukulele at a lower price, this is the one for you. We wanted to offer a ukulele that highlights perfect intonation, great tone and looks really good too, BUT doesn't break the bank. I feel absolutely confident we did just that with this one!
