Details

The Signature Romero Tenor, also known as the "Replica", is a production copy of the Pepe Romero custom ukuleles, and has many of the features of these super expensive, long wait time instruments. The essential DNA that goes into one of the customs, like the Spanish heel joint on the neck, the reverse fan bracing, and intricate genuine Abalone inlay and purfling are all present in this Replica. You can see more about the model from the man himself here:

It is quite an extraordinary instrument. The sustain is legendary, and the tone is exquisite. Instantly, upon handling it, you know that it is something special as it is so lightweight, and so resonant if you tap the bridge. The holy grail of uke building is to make them light and stiff - and this uke is both very light and super stiff. The reverse fan bracing pattern used (you can see this through the soundhole quite easily) no doubt has something to do with this; all top end uke makers have their own ways of getting the best out of the wood they use, and Romero's method here with the bracing so obviously works beautifully.

There is no denying it - in just 2 years the Romero Creations Ukulele line has really stamped its authority on what to expect from a high end Ukulele. The Replica is the next logical step forward for a stellar Uke brand.
