GKU ukuleles are handcrafted on the island of Oahu and made available to ukulele enthusiasts only in extremely low numbers each year. Prices typically begin around $2,800 for a more basic model and range upwards of $6,500 for the more elaborate models showcasing the highest grade woods and amenities. This one is gorgeous and a more basic model. It has exceptional volume, projection, and sustain and is a wonderful players ukulele minus all the ‘bling’ of the premium models that Greg handcrafts. Great clarity with nice low end, a balanced mid-range, and crisp highs. A highly recommended and extremely rare custom tenor ukulele by Greg Uyehara of GKU Ukuleles.
