This unique and beautiful instrument was made in New Haven Missouri by Jerry Hoffmann.
Hoffman A-style ukuleles are super lightweight due in part to a unique neck joint that laminates the neck and side wood into a continuous structure from the head stock to the tail. This results not only in a lightweight instrument, but in a joint that is actually stronger than conventional designs. It puts stiffness where it’s most needed to produce an open full-range sound.
The custom features of this ukulele include forward placed sound holes on either side of the fret board, a bass side sound port, marquetry inlay on the head plate and fret board, custom-made bridge, and maple purfling. Three unique species of walnut are used for the sides, neck and marquetry which also includes cocobolo and maple. The top is western cedar and the fret board and bridge are ebony. Strings are Southcoast medium-heavy gauge linear strung on a bone nut and saddle (1 7/16’ nut), and tuners are Gotoh UPT. The finish is vintage oil.

Hoffman Ukuleles are made from materials hand processed from as close their source as possible. This gives full control over the process and insures the best sound, durability and style. The actual construction of the ukulele is done entirely by hand where attention is paid to how the materials are selected, and how they will interact together as a single unit. All Hoffman ukuleles feature an exclusive pinned nut that allows string gauge changes without replacement or modification as required with traditional nuts.
Includes Hard wood case and humidifier.
