This is an incredible new Hive ukulele made by master luthier Jake Maclay. This spruce top walnut is a first for us from Jake and one of the best ukes we've had the pleasure to showcase. Super light in weight, gorgeous superb tonewoods, tasteful exquisite features, as easy to play as it gets, and a real treat to ears.

Corey samples one of the best instruments we've had the pleasure of showing. Fantastic new Hive! Take a listen.

Jake said this about this ukulele, "After 15 years of building, the materials on this ukulele are a good reflection of my career. California Claro Walnut representing my early days as the Compass Rose Builder. West Virginia Red Spruce representing my birth state and current home." We think it's a fantastic combination!

Meticulously mitered purflings follow body and neck binding and a multilayered faceplate and back strap add to the stunning look of this instrument. Upgrades include the gorgeous figured walnut and red spruce, radius fretboard, a side sound port, gold Waverly tuners, and a gold Ameritage hardshell case.

This instrument has bold tones and classy looks. Feels great, sounds amazing. Jake Maclay is among the absolute best ukulele makers we have experienced. There's a simple elegance, impeccable build quality, and wonderful tone put this in our ultimate tenor category. Don't hesitate to snag it if you can.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Also includes the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
