The Fun Ukulele Company
Since our founding in 2009 we have maintained the tradition of hand craftsmanship, producing instruments with delicate attention to the needs of the player, because we are ukulele players ourselves. Each instrument is built by hand without the use of CNC or other automation. We blend traditional luthiery with innovative materials and use exclusively reclaimed and sustainably managed timber and recycled materials. Each instrument is one of a kind and built to the highest standard of workmanship, design and playability.
"Joshua, thanks for building me a one of a kind 5 string tenor for all reclaimed woods. It has a nice deep tone and the sustain is great. The fret dressing is excellent, better than my other custom ukes. Again, thanks for your dedication to fine musical instruments."
-Roy Wood, Dallas Texas 2014
"Hard to put it down. You really customized the set-up to fit my playing style, the neck and 19" scale lets my old fingers move smoothly up the neck and as I like songs with lots of chords this unique instrument is a true blessing. Thanks Joshua." -Roy, 2017

"I have just received my Custom “Fun Ukulele Co.” Tenor Electric Ukulele... It’s a piece of art, a very fine instrument. It sounds huge, clear, amazing. Lot of sustain working with effects (chorus, delay and reverb). Smooth and very comfortable along the neck. High playability!
