    This custom Grimes has a gorgeous look and sound with a sinker redwood top and a Brazilian wood called Kingwood on the sides and back. Here's some details from Cook Woods.

    Dalbergia caerensis.  A rare rosewood with violet and light black streaks.  From the Atlantic forest in Brazil.  King wood has been the wood of King's for hundreds of years in France, England, and Europe. Beautiful violet purple color. Extremely Rare and High Quality.  Kingwood has a very similar "bell like" tap tone to Brazilian Rosewood.  Kingwood is rare in itself and is an exceptional acoustic wood!

    Framed off with blood wood and protected with a sweet gloss finish. Awesome feel and just wonderful tone. Check out this new tenor from legendary Maui luthier, Steve Grimes.

    Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.

    Steve Grimes has been making ukes for many many years, but he got famous as a guitar maker. George Benson, Keola Beamer, Willie Nelson, and many other professional guitar players have chosen Grimes guitars because they are awesome! Steve is a musician and and the way he voices and sets up his instruments shows a passion for the tone and feel that make an instrument great. On top of that he builds with a gallery style beauty, both in design and execution, that attracts collectors and enthusiasts. So as you can imagine, Steve has stayed too busy to provide us many, but we just got this one and it's awesome!

    This is a fantastic instrument and we guarantee you will love it! Includes an Ameritage hardcase and Oasis humidifier.
