Custom Ko’olau Tenor Ukulele


Custom ukuleles by Ko’olau Ukulele Company. Absolutely stunning Custom Ko`olau Tenor Ukulele in excellent original condition and handcrafted here on the island of Oahu by one of Hawaii’s foremost luthiers, John Kitakis and his son Noa Bonk.

This gently played custom uke is a model 300 (now known as the ‘Deluxe’ model) by designation and is a remarkable player ukulele with almost no playwear whatsoever. A quick plug-n-play pick up and strap button set up for the weekend musician or simply for your uke enthusiast on a quest for a premium ukulele. Highly recommended player uke!

The body is handcrafted with gorgeous flamed curly Hawaiian Koa face, back and sides. The fingerboard and bridge is crafted from ebony wood for optimal tone. There is also a matching ebony wood headstock plate and top and back soundboard binding for aesthetic appeal. The instrument also boasts a gorgeous rope marquetry top purfling with paua ‘abalone’ shell rosette.  Mother-of-pearl inlay for the position markers on positions 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 for quick and easy reference and Ko`olau logo on the headstock. Professional Grover open-geared tuners for precise tuning and a tone that is absolutely wonderful for the casual uke player, the weekend musician, and the recording artist!

The tone and sustain of the instrument is clear, crisp, and well projected. Nice deep rich low tones and well balanced mid-range and high tones as well. Excellent projection, sustain, and clarity all the way up the neck. A traditional tone that rings true “Hawaii” with every strum and a custom piece that is rarely available.
