A cutting-edge instrument
Starting with the iconic blues guitars of the 1930s for inspiration, every component of our ukuleles was designed from the ground up to make these these ukuleles a true work of art.
With features such as the 12" radiused fretboard, 'blind' fretwork, and 14th fret body join, this ukulele was designed to be effortless to play by beginners and pros alike.
Its internal construction brings out the best tone you'll ever hear from a ukulele, building on Richard Wilson's two decades of experience crafting acoustic guitars.
Individually handcrafted in our workshop in Brisbane, Australia.
Starting with quality materials, superior structural design, and impeccable craftsmanship. As each ukulele is crafted it becomes more than the sum of its parts.
Nature's finest, Sustainably sourced
What started as a creative way to use smaller material leftover from our guitar range has turned into a tonewood quest of its own. Our inventory of world-class ukulele tonewoods is the starting point for our incredible ukuleles.
Every ukulele we craft features 100% solid tonewoods.
Our ukuleles feature some of the finest tonewoods on the planet, which are meticulously dried, cut, conditioned and prepared in our climate controlled workshop.
Featuring an organic, three-dimensional shape, our unique, lightweight bridge is key to the incredible volume and complex tone you hear every time you pluck or strum.
The strings pass through the bridge and are securely directly against the soundboard, ensuring that every vibration brings your ukulele alive.
Reinforced and refined
The one-piece African Mahogany neck has been designed to bring refinement and playability to the ukulele's aesthetics.
Featuring a carved volute at the headstock that echoes the sinuous curves of the bridge, feels like an extension of your hand.
Every ukulele features mortise and tenon construction that offers an incredibly strong and tonally superior body joint.
Crafted to sing
A Responsive Ukulele
Building on centuries of tradition in the classical guitar world, our ukuleles feature an intricate fan bracing pattern that is designed for the most resonant tone you'll ever hear from a ukulele -- and a lifetime of playing.
Working closely with suppliers in Alaska, we source only the most lightweight, stiff Sitka Spruce available.
Each brace is carved to exacting dimensions to ensure every instrument sounds its best.
