This is one of the finest ukes we've ever experienced. It has all the tone and playability you could wish for. The design and craftsmanship from Bruce and Matt Petros is astonishing. Corey goes over some of the features and gives us some samples.
This one has an Italian spruce top. This tonewood became famous from the best Italian violin makers and many consider it to be the best soundboard tonewood for transmitting sound. It certainly sounds amazing on this custom tenor ukulele. It pairs perfectly with the eye-popping wood on the back and sides.
“Amboyna Burl, Pterocarpus indicus, is the World's rarest and most expensive burl, possessing incredible colors and patterns. It was used for the first Rolls Royce's dashboards. Amboyna has become such a rarity that it's even difficult to obtain in veneer form in America. ”
This is one of the finest, most lovable ukes we've had. There are so many intricate and beautifully executed details to admire all over this unique instrument. There are also functional details like custom Rogers tuners, a perfect neck with radius fretboard and super comfortable playability, the side sound port, which adds to the ultimate feature, an amazing tonal experience. This is the latest masterpiece from Bruce Petros and we give it our top recommendations.
If you're looking for the ultimate ukulele experience in sound, looks, and feel, and you can afford this amazing instrument, it will give a lifetime ukulele inspiration.

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time it takes before shipment-
Full Setup: 7-10 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
-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.
