(C.2014). Mint. Custom Jeb Wiemer tenor ukulele handcrafted on Oahu, HI. Jeb was born in Hawaii and lived in the continental USA for a number of years before returning back the islands. Once he returned to Hawaii, he met Noa Bonk of Ko’olau Guitars and Ukuleles – where he learned the art of ukulele luthiery and apprenticed for several years before starting his own company Wiemer Guitars and Ukuleles in 2011.
This beautiful Jeb Wiemer tenor ukulele was handcrafted of rare Cuban Mahogany wood face, back, and sides that was harvested on the island of Oahu. Cuban Mahogany wood is a rare prized wood only available here in Hawaii since it was over harvested in Cuba during the 1800s. It remains amongst the most sought woods both for it’s tonal properties and its gorgeous appearance. Gabon ebony wood fretboard and bridge with a matching Gabon ebony wood headstock plate.
