Cusotm Glyph “Ditson Style” Soprano Ukulele


Preowned. Beautiful Custom Glyph Soprano Ukulele handcrafted by luthier David Means of Annapolis, Maryland in excellent original condition. Glyph instruments are highly sought-after custom pieces that rarely become available on the open market.

This beautiful custom Glyph is handcrafted from a gorgeous set of curly Hawaiian Koa wood on the face, back, and sides with a matching curly Koa wood neck and bridge. Rosewood fingerboard with maple wood top and back binding. This instrument was fashioned after the historical instruments commissioned by the Ditson Company to Martin & Co. and bear a slightly wider upper and lower bout, giving the instrument a bolder sound with incredible projection and sustain for such a small-bodied instrument. The instrument has a twelve fret joint to the body with an elegant double-bound wood rosette and single top purfling,  position markers on 5,7, and 10 for quick reference, mother-of-pearl classic Glyph inlay on the headstock, and modern friction tuners consistent with the appearance of the historical tuners typically found on these sorts of instruments in the 1920s.

This instrument is a phenomenal player ukulele and remarkably light in weight but very well balanced. Beautiful tones, great sustain, excellent projection from a small-bodied instrument. This one is quite remarkable and comes highly recommended for the professional musician and recreational player alike. #240027
