Pictures AND video show the exact ukulele available here.
There is the newest addition to Rebels limited series designs and it's a very special tenor.
This is a unique new instrument from The Rebel Ukulele Company. The top is the beloved western red cedar we know and love. The sides and back are lagerstroemia floribunda, also known as Thai Crape Myrtle. It's a gorgeous hardwood and this one has incredible figuring.
Corey and Kalei give us a sound sample. This ukulele is strung with a plain low G set but we can set it up high G or with a different low G if you prefer that.
Our sound samples are recorded for true reference and have no alteration or enhancement. Use quality playback for the most accurate listening.
Rebel had this to say about the name and inspiration for this instrument.
"This model is inspired by the poem of the same name “Invictus” by William Earnest Henry. Invictus, meaning unconquerable or undefeated in Latin, was written in 1875. Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader regularly recited this poem while he was imprisoned for his political activism. He later became the President of South Africa, who won the heart of people, united the nation and overcame racism.
In recent years, people all over the world have united and fought through hardship.
This model serves as a reminder that it takes perseverance and resilience to overcome struggles.
It gives hope that better days are ahead of us as long as we never give up."
Our goal as a store is to carry the absolute best ukuleles in the world. We are proud to offer you this ukulele, not just because it's beautiful, but because of it's precise intonation, amazing sound, and effortless play-ability.
This includes a hardshell tenor case and Oasis humidifier. This is a limited run so don't hesitate to add this amazing custom to your collection.

Humidifier (Options at the "Humidifier Options" above)
This is required if you live in a low humidity area or if you use indoor heating/cooling, especially for areas with winter seasons or hot summers. If you are heating the air in your house, the air will become extremely dry.
Regardless of the outside humidity levels, the indoor humidity levels will drop dramatically once the air is heated. The same is true for air conditioning, usually not as drastic of a humidity drop as a heater, but it will remove a significant amount of moisture from the air as well. In either case, it is always a good idea to supplement with a humidifier that you store in the case with the instrument while not in use. This is usually a requirement by Ukulele manufacturers in order to keep the instrument covered under warranty.
In order to humidify the instrument, you will need a case for the humidifier to work properly and you will need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)
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.
Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
