Here’s one of our newer models: the Jumbo (Extended) Tenor, which has a 19″ scale, as opposed to 17″ on our regular sized tenors.It is tuned GCEA, with either a high or a low “G” string. This model is almost exactly the same size as a vintage Kamaka baritone, and it can be strung with baritone strings in a DGBE tuning, so we sometimes describe it as a 19″ baritone. (Our regular baritone ukes have a 20″ scale and a slightly larger body).
This particular model has a solid genuine Hawaiian koa wood top and solid mahogany back, sides and neck, with an ebony fingerboard, bridge and binding. It also has a cutaway lower bout, which not only looks very cool but also provides easier access to the higher frets. Like all Meles, it is entirely handmade, and painstakingly set up for great action and intonation. A lot of professional players choose the Jumbo size because of its fat sound and great sustain. It is also a perfect instrument for those with very large hands , because of the ever so slightly wider string spacing . It is an Great Ukulele for the fingerstyle and fast picking/plucking
style players. This Ukulele is MUST add to your growing Ukulele collection!!
