I'iwi Custom Honduran Mahogany Tenor (#1951)

I'iwi Custom Honduran Mahogany Tenor (#1951)

Availability: Out of stock



This custom Hawaiian-made custom tenor ukulele was made by Charlie Fukuba with Honduran mahogany he's had for over 20 years. It's a modest beauty but what's truly great is the acoustic qualities.

This instrument has an amazing sound and a projection that would rival any ukulele we've had. Sealing the deal is the feel of it. It plays like a dream and is a custom instrument you can really treasure for many years. Very light in weight. Very lively and open in tone. Warm and clear with wonderful sustain. Corey samples this wonderful new custom tenor. 

This one is rich and deep, while still ringing strong and clear in the higher register. 

Charlie Fukuba is a musician first and foremost and he builds for tone. His craftsmanship is excellent and the inlay is super cool, but we love I'iwi for the tone. Such a warm, clear sound that plays true all the way up the neck. They are made in Hawaii and feature beautiful woods and designs.

The design on this tenor with its three small sound holes lends itself to the rich guitar-like tones many of us love to hear. This is what Hawaii's top custom builders usually aim for: a big, warm, yet clear and projecting sound that "sings". This is one of the best to come through. Includes hard case and humidifier.

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 Herco included humidifier (HE-360) for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (e.g., parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or an area with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your house. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

* Put a note in the Special Instructions if you would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything (e.g., “Please setup low G”). 

* Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. We recommend either the Mi-Si or the LR Baggs pickup for this ukulele.

* After adding this instrument to your cart, you can shop further to create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

* Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your order reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free FedEx 2-day shipping. Two days is the time in transit. For international orders, we include USPS Express shipping if your cart is $800 or more (subject to approval). Before it is shipped, your instrument will go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money.
