Rating:
100 % of 100

Eric Devine is a master luthier located in Maui. His ukes are of the highest level quality and he stays backordered by a few years. This one was built December 2012 but is in mint/ new condition with no absolutely no signs of wear. It sold originally for $9,000 with this custom made Hoffee case. It sounds amazing with deep, lush tones and incredible sustain. On top of that the action is super low, just below 2mm at the 12th fret and the neck set and curvature are absolutely perfect to allow this ultra easy playability without buzzing. The looks...well, you can judge for yourself, but we think it's pretty obviously spectacular in a rare way. Good luck in bidding for this world class instrument. We guarantee you love it!

These videos are done using transparent recording equipment and are not enhanced in any way. We are dedicated to showing true tone so use quality speakers or headphones for the most accurate listening experience.

We did two sound samples of this incredible uke. First with Kalei and then Corey.

2.This is an English format “open bid” auction. The reserve price is $4,475. Any price shown above this is the current prevailing bid. You must bid higher by at least $25.00.

3.You must log in to your TheUkuleleSite account to bid. If you don’t have an account, simply create one. From "My Account" you need to set your auction name and choose when you would like to be emailed under the "My Auction" tab. You can also cancel bids from there. 

4.You can bid a fixed amount, or choose Auto Bid. With Auto Bid, you set your maximum bid price and the system will bid as necessary on your behalf up to your Auto Bid maximum price.

5.We’re also including Going, Going, Gone to simulate a live auction with an auctioneer. With this feature, any new highest bid received in the final sixty [60] seconds will re-set a sixty [60] second window for new bids to be received. As long as a higher bid comes in, the Going, Going, Gone window will re-set again. This cycle will continue until the prevailing bid survives without being overbid within the sixty [60] second window.

6. When the auction ends, the highest bid received at or above the reserve price will be the winner. We must receive your bid for it to count.

7.The highest bid will be invoiced for the full value of the bid and have 24 hours from the invoice date to pay for their purchase in full. If the purchase price is not remitted by the deadline, the next highest bidder will be contacted and invoiced at their final bid price. This will continue until the sale is concluded.

The Muse Ukulele

"Named for it's ability to inspire, the Muse ukulele is sure to bring out your inner artist. It's tighter waist and sloping shoulders give it a look that suggests precision and accuracy. The Muse model ukulele is based off of the same bracing system as the Kasha ukulele but designed for a more precise style of playing. The Muse offers a slightly more detailed sound. You will tend to hear the strings more independently of each other. This makes it just slightly better for finder picking or classical styles of playing. If you were to compare it to a guitar, it would be the Jumbo or Grand Auditorium of the uke would."

This ultimate custom tenor ukulele includes a custom made $800 Hoffee carbon fiber case also in brand new condition, as well as an Oasis OH5+ Humidifier.

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time it takes before shipment-

Full Setup: 6-8 Days

Basic Quality Control: 2-3 Days

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - FREE for all Ukuleles $399 and over / $20.00 for Ukuleles from $300-399 / $30.00 for Ukuleles Under $300


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.
