Handmade Ukuleles

Custom Tenor Ukuleles

Ukuleles are fun folky little instruments. I build tenor ukes with fine tonewoods and some guitar-like specs.

Think of them as little 4-string Martin guitars with nylon strings. Wood bindings, hot hide glue and torrefied bracing are standard features. One custom inlay is included.
