The TkiTki ukulele range is utterly fantastic - they're the most faithful replication of early Martin ukes that we have ever seen. This custom concert ukulele is hand-made in Japan using all solid curly mango. It sounds sensational, with bright highs and deep lows, while keeping that traditional uke sound.

The build quality of these concert ukuleles is traditional and eerily reminiscent of some museum grade instruments we have had the pleasure of playing. The finish is open pore and lightly glossed in such a way that the instrument feels really nicely played in.

Mango can be many things to many people as a tonewood but the sound of these ukuleles is best described as aged, smoky and a real top shelf whiskey of a uke. They offer great string tension and sustain.

Be aware that because this has a light gloss over open pore finish, with no grain filler used, you may find some small pits and anomalies in the finish. They do not have the mirror finish of a Kanile'a!
