This weeks uke of the its not strictly a uke...but it still has 4 strings. Tuned CGDA if you are used to uke or even normal guitar the tenor guitar will have you thinking and playing just a little bit differently. The Kala Tenor Guitar sports a solid spruce top with rosewood back and sides and comes with a fitted gigbag. Was $595 RRP we have one in stock brand new for $495.
Uke of the week is the Cordoba 24B Baritone.
Sporting a solid cedar top with spalted maple back and sides the Cordoba 24 series are beautiful looking and sounding ukuleles. Every Cordoba uke 20 series and up comes with a custom gigbag that is built to last, however you could upgrade to a hardcase should you so desire.
Uke of the week is an Ohana CK28 Concert.
This Nunes style uke is made from all solid premium mahogany and features beautiful rope binding just like the ukes from the beginning of last century. Anyone that loves vintage style ukes (we love em here!) will appreciate the look and sound of this Ohana uke.
$495 with hardcase.
This beaut old vintage Baritone just walked in the door on consignment so we decided to make it Uke of the week. It's a Bruko, hand made in West Germany, all solid mahogany and comes with passive pickup and a very nice deluxe hardcase. Currently strung in the GCEA tuning we'll leave it to the new owner to decide if they would prefer the more traditional DGAE tuning or keep it how it is.
$499 with passive pickup and deluxe hardcase...the owner reckons he bought it from us over 12 years ago and it is in fantastic well looked after condition.
Every Cordoba 30 series uke that I have played has been an absolute winner..They are light and resonant, with a neck that is very easy to play. These and the Pono tenors are probably the closest thing to a Kamaka that we have seen through the shop. We have all in stock at the moment, feel free to come in and compare for yourself.
The 30T comes with a deluxe Cordoba polyfoam case, very light and durable, great for travelling. We also have the Cordoba 35TSCE in stock too which is the solid spruce top, solid acacia back and sides with a Baggs pickup for those that need to be able to plug in.
- Solid Mahogany top, back and sides

- $799 with Cordoba polyfoam case.
