Description

Details

Just in! Every year we get a small batch of customs from Luis Feu de Mesquita, a master luthier in Ontario, Canada. This stunning tenor just arrived. Take a listen as Corey and Mika sample and review this new custom. So powerful and rich in harmonic overtones! We give LFDM our highest recommendations.

The design of this tenor is unique to Luis with the Maccaferri or gypsy jazz guitar body shape, and tapered headstock, but with a round soundhole. The bracing inside though is what you call "lattice". This is a modern classical bracing known for its strong projection. The voice is both strong and sweet with extremely warm tone and excellent resonance across all frequencies.

This instrument has beautiful tonewoods including a Bearclaw spruce top and striking Ziricote sides and back. Curly Bubinga is used for the rosette, faceplate, and end graft. Ebony wood binding frames off the instrument and it's protected with a gloss finish. Luis uses a more environmentally friendly water-based finish and it's not as cosmetically perfect as some of the custom nitro finishes, but it's a great protective finish and shows off the wood wonderfully. And as you can hear, it does not inhibit the phenomenal tone this tenor has. 

The is a special instrument with a wonderful feel and tone and we think you will love it. Includes Oahu hard case and Humistat humidifier, upgradable in the options on this page.

This is one of 6 LFDM we just received for 2020. Don't miss the opportunity to experience this unique and truly special instrument.

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.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat Model 1 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air most of the day and night.
