The ukulele is a very small guitar native to Hawaii. The better ukuleles, also referred to as ukeleles, are handcrafted from fine woods. In Hawaii, they are crafted from Koa wood which Tomas Delgado also uses. Tomas Delgado, Candelas Guitar luthier, handcrafts his soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles from various types of high quality wood including Koa, Mahogany, Myrtle wood, Spanish Cedar, and Port Ordford Cedar. Ukulele tops are constructed from the same selection of the aforementioned woods.

Your ukulele will be packaged with our famed pickguards if so desired.
