  1. Manley Custom Steel 8 String Tenor
    $3,000.00

    In his workshop in Didsbury, at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada, Jake Peters designs and builds exquisite hand-crafted stringed instruments. These instruments are one of a kind with extreme attention to detail. Dedication to his craft and extensive knowledge are reflected in the artistry of his custom, hand-made instruments. Jake normally only builds on commission but decided to make a few for us to share with you here.

    This one features the beautiful bear claw spruce top and spalted maple sides and back bound in koa. The neck is also maple with a Hawaiian pheasant wood center strip. It's 8 doubled string G C E A, just like normal uke. What you get a totally unique tone we think you'll love. 

    It's finished in a beautiful nitrocellulose finish. Take a listen to this interview and demo with the builder, Jake Peters. 

    Jake's luthier training started early - watching his mom and uncle repair acoustic instruments. In his teen years, he began learning the art of inlay. He later worked with Jean Larrivee cutting mother of pearl and abalone. Jake enrolled in the luthier course offered by Dave Freemen of Timeless Instruments in 1985. An intense 7-week course taught by a world-class luthier. Since then he's been making custom instruments and we are so glad he found the ukulele. This is a fantastic and very unique tenor and we think you'll be inspired to make new beautiful music with it. 

    Pictures and video show the exact instrument now available! Includes Oahu Fiberglass Hardshell Case and Oasis Humidifier.

  3. Hapa Tenor Spruce/ Ziricote (Custom 1901)
    $3,650.00

    Pics and videos show the one and only available now to you (if it says "In Stock").

    Micah Bruce is the master luthier behind this beautiful custom tenor ukulele. While it's one of the first from this exciting new line, Micah has been a professional luthier for the last decade. He built for Collings Guitars for many years, has his own custom guitar line, and is one the main Martin warranty repairmen for Nebraska. This one resembles a classic guitar style with a fantastic light burst spruce top and the handmade tortoise pickguard. This matches the gorgeous colors and curls of this Hawaiian koa. Building in Nebraska, Bruce teamed up with Rob Li and ʻĀina Racoma from Hawaii, who had a desire to build Hawaiian style tenors at the highest level, to make the Hapa Ukulele, the mix of Haole and Hawaiian. It makes a beautiful creation with this ukulele.

    Brittni gives us the first sound sample on this special instrument. 

    Along with the 12" fingerboard radius and a comfortable tapered "C" shape neck, these are built for ease of play. Waverly tuners with koa buttons make it easy to tune and add to the beauty. Corey gives us another listen and look.

    The appointments are classic, elegant, and executed beautifully. The volute on the beautifully hand-carved neck, the fully bound body, neck, and faceplate, the abalone logo inlay, and this subtle sunset of a sunburst spruce top complimented by the Hilo curly koa and all prtected with a cyrstal clear gloss nitro finish, all of this makes for a super nice custom tenor! Most importantly, it has top tier tone! Kalei gives us one more sample.

    Includes hardshell case.
