2017. Preowned. Good condition. Beautifully handcrafted and extremely rare full custom ukulele by Joji Yoshida of Okinawa, Japan. Joji’s ukuleles are known for their remarkable craftsmanship, attention to detail and balanced tones with several of Japan’s most famous celebrities and musicians alike enjoying his finely handcrafted works of art.
This beautiful Custom Joji Yoshida Tenor Ukulele exemplifies the Japanese art of simple elegance and lends itself to being both aesthetically pleasing and a wonderful playing full custom ukulele. Joji uses nothing but the finest woods in the world, much of which is a substantially higher grade than what is typically found on the landscape of available ukuleles on the market.
In this instance, the body was handcrafted with a master grade set of coveted Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with Adirondack Spruce soundboard. Curly Maple wood neck. The fretboard, bridge, and headstock veneer were crafted of Snakewood with a gorgeous triple burl wood rosette with abalone shell. Aesthetically, this instrument is absolutely stunning! A wonderful pairing of wood but an excellent combination tonally as well. Professional Rodgers Slotted Headstock Tuners for precise and smooth tuning, these tuners are regarded as some of the best in the world. Gorgeous b-w purfling lines on top, back, and sides. Side sound port for monitor like experience by which the sound projects both forward toward the audience and upward toward the player, allowing the player to hear every subtle nuance the instrument has to offer. Position marks on the side of the neck for a top-down quick reference. Jescar EVO Gold Fret – made in Germany. French Polish Finish. Instrument shows some minor play wear and settling in the finish but this instrument is an absolute cannon.
Tonally, this beautiful Custom Joji Kanda Tenor Ukulele is a wonderful playing instrument with excellent clarity and a wide breath of tones. Wonderful lows with excellent sustain and a balanced midrange and nice highs. An absolute joy to play with a beautiful design from one of Japan’s most respected and famous ukulele luthiers, Joji Yoshida. ID#:220020
