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. The beautiful soundboard matches the gorgeous colors and curls of the Hawaiian koa back and sides. It's protected and shown of with a crystal clear nitrocellulose gloss finish.

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

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.

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, elegant, classic, 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 complemented by the Hilo curly koa, all of this makes for a custom tenor that's super sweet on the eyes. A uke you can really enjoy and admire.

Most importantly, it has top tier tone! Kalei gives us one more sample.

Includes hardshell case, humidifier, and final setup.

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.
