Custom Ukuleles

Every ukulele Joe builds is a custom build ukulele.  They are all unique in their own way.  If you see a uke you like, Joe can build it in that style, but it will be unique.  You may order your uke to your own specifications.  Joe will accommodate you to all practical extent.  Contact Joe to order.  You may also check the Surf n Sea shop on Kam. Hwy in Haleiwa.  It has a limited stock of Joe's ukuleles (see the For Sale page) in addition to a nice selection of other ukuleles.  View the Gallery to see examples of ukuleles made by Joe.
