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 and back was handcrafted from a gorgeous set of Hawaiian Koa wood top with a faded blue jean stained Bigleaf Maple wood sides.

Honduran mahogany, Maple & Spanish Cedar neck, adding to the beauty and appeal of this gorgeous ukulele.
