We're Gordon & Char Mayer and Aaron Keim - a lutherie team that builds professional-grade custom ukuleles in a variety of models from stunning imported & domestic hardwoods.

 

We hand-build and hand-voice each instrument to maximize volume, tone and sustain. Every instrument includes several standard features such as solid wood construction, a radiused fretboard and geared tuners.

 

We work with a number of great musicians who play and endorse our instruments.

 

Our focus is on playability and acoustics. We pride ourselves in perfect intonation, level frets, low action, smooth fret ends, and a "fast" neck--everything that the serious musician should demand, but features that are even more important to the beginner & intermediate player.

 

We specialize in matching the acoustic & aesthetic properties of wood to your personal taste & playing style.

"My ukulele arrived a few days ago and we’ve become inseparable. Simply said, this ukulele is a work of art. Light weight with clear, bright and resonant sound, it has a character all its own. The sustain is remarkable. The workmanship is flawless. And the combination of very low action and radiused fret board make it the easiest ukulele I have ever played up the neck. Finally, the K&K Twin Spot pickup is fabulous. Thank you for taking such intelligent, artistic and meticulous care with my instrument. It took about 27 seconds to bond with it and now I want another Mya-Moe!"
