    Description

    Details

    From the same design and lutherie team that brought the Alchemist and Livingston, we now get this new limited run model. This is first mahogany Elysium. It's an absolutely magnificent 6 string tenor. It has an asymmetrical body and a very unique slotted headstock. It's a 6 string which might scare off some people. But, it's SO easy to play and sounds awesome! I'm sure any lover of 4 string would feel right at home making music on this beautiful 6 string from Rebel.

    The attention to detail, unique and artistic design, and precision craftsmanship make this one of the nicest ukes ever. On top of that is the wonderful "open" sound and excellent balance.

    Take a listen to a "dry" sound sample from Kalei playing custom mango 6 string. Pictures AND video show the exact ukulele available here.

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

    One interesting aspect of this ukulele is the headstock doubles as a bottle opener. We suggest you don't use it for that purpose, but this ukulele also includes a separate Rebel bottle opener as well. Drink responsibly :)

    Peng and the Rebel team usually approach their custom line with a unique concept. This is what they had to say about the Elysium.

    Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian-British philosopher and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, once said  

    “Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”

    He also said

    “If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.”

    The Rebel Elysium was inspired by his work. The result was the making of an ukulele that would live an eternal life with beauty and silliness.

    This companies desire for creative experimentation lead to another incredible ukulele design that both sounds awesome and looks gorgeous!

    Our goal as a store is to carry the absolute best ukuleles in the world. We are proud to offer you this ukulele, not just because it's beautiful, but because of it's precise intonation, amazing sound, and effortless play-ability.

    This includes a hard shell tenor case and Oasis humidifier. We only have this one, so don't hesitate to add this amazing custom to your collection.
