Description

Details

This is a Hawaiian Mahogany tenor ukulele made by Jeb Wiemer. For many years Jeb has built acoustic guitars, mandolins, and some of the finest ukuleles in the world. His one man custom shop is right down the road from us here on the North Shore of Oahu.

The balanced sweet tone and full projection on this one is quite impressive. The beautiful woods are protected and shown off with a perfect nitrocellulose finish, and the feel is extremely comfortable with a slightly slender C shape neck and ideal low action.

Pictures and video show the exact ukulele available here! Corey gives us a a sound sample.

So what is Hawaiian Mahogany? This is from the Koolau Ukulele Website describing this sparse wood:

Swietenia Mahogani, or commonly named West Indian Mahogany, Spanish Mahogany, or Cuban Mahogany is more expensive due to being considered commercially extinct, however over 100 years ago this Mahogany, Swietenia Mahogani was planted here on Oahu. Although we have relatively few Swietenia Mahogani (or as we call it Hawaiian Mahogany) on Oahu, on occasion we are able to acquire this rarely harvested lumber. Our cost of acquiring this lumber is higher than most Koa. Hawaiian Mahogany is a beautiful red-brown color, but more dense and closed grained than the more common Swietenia Macrophylla. 

Hawaiian mahogany has the density of koa for that bright tone but with a distinctly mahogany bass tone. We've have been consistently impressed!

A seriously sharp looking musical partner, this one is sure to please.

Comes with Ko'olau harccase and Oasis Humidifier for no additional cost.

Normally, the wait is around 12 months and longer for Jeb's custom orders. You have the rare opportunity to get this custom Tenor now!
