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". 

Aaron samples this new Grimes Maple tenor.

Steve Grimes is a legendary guitar maker located in Kula on the island of Maui. Keola Beamer, George Benson, Willie Nelson, and many other professional guitar players have chosen Grimes guitars because they are awesome! This is a special ukulele, a gem to the eye and a joy to the ear. If you're able to get such a world-class ukulele then you can experience this in person. We think you'll love it for life!

The video above with Aaron was taken from our Youtube podcast with Steve. In this segment he discusses woods and more with me and Aaron.

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.

If you would like to let the setup or shipping department know anything just put a note in the Special Instructions box.
