Custom Ukuleles





​Custom ukuleles built to last for generations...

John custom builds four standard sizes with many different wood configurations and options. The "sound" or voicing he shoots for regardless of the type of wood, is one that is sweet and clear with good note separation all the way up the neck.  

​Each uke is set up and the nut and saddle adjusted to produce "spot on" intonation all the way up the scale. So whether you're playing finger style, or strumming while accenting lead lines, the notes ring loud, clear and true....   

Soprano- 13-3/4" scale             
Concert- 15" scale                                         
Tenor- 17" scale                   
Baritone- 19-7/8" scale
