Custom Ukuleles

The Tenor/Tenor is a two instrument matching set that allows the uke player to move into the realm of steel string guitar without having to learn any new chord fingerings.  The tenor guitar tuned to DGBE is the same tuning and pitch as a baritone uke. This allows a seamless transition to the tone and voicing of a steel string guitar and can open up new avenues of musical growth and expression.  Tenor guitars were very popular from the 1930's through the 1970's and there is currently a resurgence in interest as they can be used for all types of musical genres.   We are offering the Tenor/Tenor as a special set or we'll build you an individual tenor guitar with woods of your choice.

The Kimo Hussey model is a design collaboration between John and Kimo and incorporates a 19" scale along with a 1-1/2 nut.  This provides the player more horizontal and vertical room to make those barre and jazz chords easier to play with less chance for string buzz.  

The mark of all Kinnard ukuleles is their responsiveness to the lightest touch.  This allows you to experience the full rich sound spectrum that the tone woods have to offer, without having to play loud.   Kinnard ukes provide more freedom to express yourself because you have greater dynamic range and volume control for your playing style.  Whether played soft or loud, this uke provides the full tonal palette the tone woods have to offer- giving you, the player, more creative control to express yourself and your music
