But the ukulele can be quite a competent musical instrument as well as a work of art and craftsmanship as I think you'll agree if you visit the pages that follow. I build my ukuleles individually always keeping the demands of the avid musician, entertainer, or serious collector in mind.
Mahalo nui loa and enjoy your visit.

There is something irresistible about a ukulele. When most people encounter one they just can't help but pick it up and run their fingers down the strings. Whether it conjures up images of moonlit nights on a far away tropical beach or takes you back in time to Waikiki when "the Duke" reigned over the surf and the beach boys would serenade their customers while serving them drinks, there is an undeniable romance and nostalgia associated with the ukulele. It's small, it's cute, it's easy to play and easy to take with you wherever you go.
The book is finally Here!!! Author Staci Blevins put as much of her heart and soul into writing this book as I do building my ukes. Have a peek over my shoulder as I work, talk to some players who own MBUs and finally get a detailed description of Wailele, the uke that represents everything I am as a builder and as a person. It's the next bes thing to owning a Moore Bettah Ukulele. Click the link below to find out more. Aloha & happy playing. :)
