Pictures and video show the instrument now available (if it says "In Stock")
This beautiful custom tenor was made by world-class luthier Steve Grimes. It features all German flamed maple and is finished in a classic cherry burst. Aside from the gallery level beauty, this ukulele has a truly sweet sweet, plays like a dream with amazing low action, and has an excellent harmonic balance all the way up. Brittni gives us a quick sample.
The tone is impressive with a warmth to the lows and the highs. Good projection and excellent balance. Steve is a musician and the way he voices and sets up his instruments shows a passion for the tone and feel that make an instrument "the best".
