Handmade Ukuleles NZ Native TimberTe Pahu

#522 - Tenor


The Captain Tenor ukulele is a slightly smaller tenor with a 16" scale length. Like all Captain ukuleles, the body is broadly designed around the classical guitar.

Transverse braces above and below the soundhole, and five fan braces of highest grade sitka spruce give the ukulele a full, warm, responsive tone.

All solid wood, bookmatched soundboard and back, endmatched sides with kahikatea binding and a lovely selection of our best native timbers.

Tenor ukuleles have 14 frets and can come with high or low G.
