    Default New models from Romero Creations?

    I think I spotted some interesting new models on Pepe Romero's Instagram channel:

    The four ukes facing upwards are bigger than his XS Soprano but look smaller than his Tiny Tenor and have the neck joining at the 12th fret instead of the 14th - maybe a concert scale version?

    The one beneath the logo on the upper left is smaller/thinner than his Grand Tenor and has a longer headstock with tuners facing backwards (possibly Gotoh Planetary Tuners). Looks a lot like a replica of the custom tenors he builds himself.

    Does anyone have more information on these? So far, I haven't found anything. Looks like they haven't been introduced to the market yet.

    Great observation. I would have missed that. I’m curious if someone finds more info. I’d like to play some of these in person. I’m a TT lurker and I’m sure I’ll get one at some point. The Grand would be fun to play

    Stop lurking and jump on a TT! You'll never regret it. Ours has the nicest tone of all our ukes.

    Pepe Romero has now revealed the new models from his Creations line.

    A) A concert scale version of the Tiny Tenor with the same body as the latter, basically a large body concert:

    B) A replica of his own custom tenors with Abalone purfling and Gotoh Planetary tuners:

    C) Pepe also recently built a Guilele version of the Tiny Tenor that will be released in the Romero Creations line in about a year and a half:

    The guitar version would be nice if it’s a guitar standard tuning instead of guitarlele
    I wish they have more wood choices

    Thanks for info Rainer. I wonder how close his replica models will be to a real Pepe Romero tenor. The picture looks right on the mark. Hope the sound is also.

    My thoughts exactly. I imagine that it is relatively easy to copy the looks, but to replicate the sound is probably a different story. I hope there will be some reviews from knowledgeable folks soon...

    Awesome what Pepe is doing. Curious to hear all the new stuff. Just ordered a TT solid top. For travel curious what concert sounds like. I bet Big sound with the tenor body I like what RC is doing.
