2023. New. Handcrafted for the 2023 National Association of Musical Merchants (NAMM) Exhibition. Beautifully handcrafted 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 top, back, and sides were handcrafted from a gorgeous set of Hawaiian curly Koa, some of the most figured Hawaiian Koa wood available on the open market. Aesthetically, this instrument is absolutely beautiful! Ebony fretboard, bridge, and headstock top and back veneer. Stabilized maple burl wood rosette infused with a pigment giving it a bluish hue in color. The natural colors of the Hawaiian Koa wood contrasted with the blue Maple find resolve in the overall natural beauty of the woods of this elegant masterpiece of an ukulele. Curly Honduras mahogany wood neck, transferring vibrations back into the sound box of the instrument for a quick and full tone. Professional Gilbert Tuners with MOP buttons for precise and smooth tuning, these tuners are regarded as some of the best in the world. Gorgeous abalone shell top  and back purfling with matching abalone shell rosette. Rocklike top and back binding. Jescar EVO Gold Fret – made in Germany. French Polish Finish.

Tonally, this beautiful Custom Joji Yoshida Tenor Ukulele is a wonderful playing instrument with excellent clarity and a wide breath of tones. Classic Hawaiian Koa midrange with excellent sustain.
