The Man Behind the Masterpiece

Pepe Romero Jr., the craftsman behind this awe-inspiring instrument, hails from a long line of classical guitarists, known as the Romeros. Besides being a celebrated guitar builder, he is also an extraordinary guitar and ukulele player. As a result, Pepe understands the intricacies of musical instruments not just from a builder’s perspective, but also from a musician’s.

The Allure of Handmade Craftsmanship

We all know that Pepe’s handcrafted classical guitars are a hot commodity, often selling for over $25,000 with a five-year waitlist. Therefore, it’s no surprise that his venture into ukuleles has generated similar excitement and demand. Because of his rising popularity, the availability of his custom ukuleles is becoming increasingly rare. Consequently, this is a prime opportunity to own a piece of musical history that is sure to appreciate in value.

Exquisite Materials

Now, let’s talk about what sets this particular ukulele apart. First and foremost, it features Moon Spruce harvested during the New Moon of December 1999 and Brazilian Rosewood from Pepe’s own private stock. The combination of these materials not only makes the ukulele visually stunning but also acoustically exceptional.

The Art of French Polish

Another striking aspect of this ukulele is its French Polish finish, a labor-intensive technique that takes weeks, if not months, to complete. And yet, the results are worth it. The sound profile is so pristine and unique that it cannot be mimicked by any other finishing technique. Pepe Romero is among the few builders worldwide who employ this method, making this instrument even more special.


The Sound: A Symphony in Miniature

So what can you expect in terms of sound? Clarity, richness, and a harmonious blend of overtones that fills any room, whether you're strumming chords, fingerpicking, or playing the Blues. For instance, the choice of strings, Pepe Romero Strings UT2, complements the wood and build quality to produce an ethereal sound.
