JI030 – Koa Concert Uke


I’m just going to say it:  JI030 is an awesome.  It features a totally wild 1 piece koa top that I found on my last trip to Atlanta.  I actually purchased an extra carry on bag at a thrift store to bring back a stash of wood even though we were technically visiting family for the holidays and not on a business trip.  The koa top is laminated to a black walnut back with a wenge accent stripe.   What do you pair with a body like that?  An Asian ebony fretboard with equally stunning grain, koa headstock overlay, and a lightly flamed quarter sawn maple neck.

The electronics on this uke are pretty straight forward.  A custom “Joyner Model T” pickup designed and wound by Warp Core Pickups runs through a volume and tone control to the integrated strap button jack.  Even with only 1 pickup, this uke has voices for days.  Want a bright crisp sound?  Volume and tone all the way up. What about a mellower jazzy sound?  Roll a little bit off the volume and take the tone to about halfway.  Metal crunch?  Crank everything to 11 and stomp on your overdrive pedal!

JI030 is definitely a special little uke and is ready to take on tour or to accompany you at your local open mic night.
