Availability: Out of stock



This is a beautiful new Hawaiian made custom tenor made by Charles Fukuba here on our island. This is the rare single hole I'iwi tenor AND also has the super rare side port. It sounds great, partly because the sinker redwood top which has been used on some of our favorite I'iwi tenors from the last few years. But this is also the first time we've had one with Australian blackwood sides and back. The back has a centerpiece of padauk, a unique and beautiful look in a fantastic custom Hawaiian tenor!

Corey gives us a sound sample. Pictures and video show the exact instrument now available here.

Like a little dreadnought, this I'iwi has wonderful depth, sustain, and a full spectrum of tones and overtones with clarity and power.

Charlie Fukuba is an amazing luthier from our island. He's also a Hoku award-winning musician and he builds with an emphasis on sound along with playability and reliability.  This ukulele has a hand-rubbed gloss finish. These features along with his design deliver a big musical sound that will inspire you more than you can imagine.

This is an ultimate custom made Hawaiian tenor ukulele and our package includes this fantastic Oahu hard case and Oasis humidifier.
