#047 Sycamore Tenor - $1,350

This domestic wood, mainly from the eastern United States, has a very undomesticated look to it. Like a Cheetah, it is ready to pounce! Because of its “wild” looking nature, I paired it with Snakewood top bindings. Snakewood is so called for its characteristic snakeskin patterns. Then trying to tame the wild, I then proceeded to add a very nice clear Spruce soundboard and added a quilted Maple rosette, just because of it’s undulating figure and color which complements the Sycamore nicely. Honduran hand-carved neck and matching Sycamore head plate with Pegheds 4-1 tuners, bone nut and saddle and you’re all set for an amazing adventure!

A Wild Child with captivating looks and alluring voice!

#028 Koa Tenor- $1,275

This beautiful set of Koa needed an equally beautiful rosette. This Jade recon-stone with real brass outlines fits the bill very nicely. I used matching Jade position dots with a Rosewood fretboard and bridge, Honduras Mahogany hand-carved neck, Peghed 4-1 tuners, bone nut and saddle and there you go. A gorgeous deep tenor you’ll love to show off to your all uke-ster friends.

Deep-bodied Tenor with a seducing voice!

#025 African Padauk Tenor - $1150

African Padauk is a bright orange-colored wood that gradually turns darker as it ages. This Tenor has reached its lovely mature age with a beautiful warm darker red/orange with a captivating voice to match. I have paired the Padauk with a very nice Western Red Cedar for the top. Honduran Mahogany hand-carved neck and rounded off with a Flamewood rosette and headplate. Macassar Ebony fretboard and bridge, black Ebony top bindings, Peghed geared-tuners and bone nut and saddle. I have added a side sound-port for your listening pleasure. This stunning Tenor will be an exquisite addition to your uke collection. As always, signed and dated by the artist.

Side-Soundport for your listening pleasure!!

#039 Canarywood Concert - $950

Canarywood is a beautiful wood from South America and its orange-ish color sports little streaks of red, brown, and green. It is paired with a nicely figured Spruce top with Bloodwood bindings and headplate that bring out the red accents in the Canarywood. Rosewood fretboard and bridge, Peghed geared tuners, a hand-carved Honduran Mahogany neck, and bone nut and saddle round it all off. Its compound front and back curves make for the best sound and sustain.

A little Canary that sings with a bright voice!!

#041 Chocolate Mango Soprano - $725

This little Chocolate Mango uke is so scrumptious you’re going to want to eat it! Exquisite book-matched back and front that will be hard to find elsewhere. I’ve paired this with a captivating Lacewood rosette and matching Lacewood headplate and heel cap. Macassar Ebony fretboard, Honduran Mahogany hand-carved neck, Tulipwood bridge and Peghed geared tuners. Bone nut and saddle and low action. As always built with front and back compound curves to get the best sound attainable. A very loud voice for such a small instrument.

#017 Anakoneke Ceylon Satinwood Concert

A good friend of mine who builds Flamingo and Classical guitars turned me on to this amazing wood. The pictures do not do it justice. As you tilt this uke back and forth you can see the medullary rays waver like a 3-D hologram. I paired this lovely golden wood with an Alaskan yellow cedar top that compliments it perfectly. I decided to give it a dramatic look with all other accouterments and so went dark with a Mun Ebony rosette and end graft with striped Macassar Ebony bindings, fretboard, headplate, bridge, and heel cap to round it all out.

Rings out with a bright, responsive voice! Listen Here

#022 Anakoneke Curly Mango Soprano

Like her big brother #021, this little soprano is pretty much the exact replica of him but in a smaller size. The wood comes from the same tree and dressed with the same appointments except I wanted to give her something to call her own. The Indian Rosewood bridge is a little different shape than her brothers. Same warm tones with a loud sisterly voice that says "don't look at him, look at me!"

She says loudly, "Look at me, look at me!" Listen Here

#021 Anakoneke Curly Mango Concert

This handsome Concert has a curly Mango body with a matching Mango peghead veneer and an Anakoneke gold "mother of pearl" logo. The curly Mahogany bindings are the perfect color match to the Mango.

Bird's Eye Maple rosette and now includes some luscious jewelry in the form of two high-end Ebony with MOP dot strap buttons. Fremont Blackline strings adorn the "through-the-top" Indian Rosewood bridge. Bone nut and saddle. Includes a hard black case. Signed by the artist.

Loud with excellent sustain and a Goldilocks "just right" tone. Listen Here

#026 Chocolate Mango Concert

Dark chocolate anyone? Chocolate Mango that is! This lovely uke stands out above the crowd with its intricate curly figure. Check out my gallery to see the back of this lovely uke. This wood is so nice I had to give it a nice French Polish finish and like the vintage violins of the past the voice of this one will just get better and better! I don't have to say too much about this gorgeous ukulele, its just plain lovely!

Dripping with rich warm tones of chocolate-y goodness!
