For sale is a beautiful custom Selmer-style tenor made by Tony Graziano in 2013. Back and sides are a gorgeous curly koa. The top is Cedar with an oval soundhole and black/white purlfed rosette, and it has rosewood binding (top & back) with black/white top purfing, rosewood end stripe and back stripe, mahogany neck with slotted headstock, ebony fretboard/mop dots, ebony head plate /mop logo inlay, ebony bridge, excellent gloss finish, K&K pickup, brass trapeze tailpiece, gold Grover geared tuning machines, plush hardshell case and recent string update.

The uke is in excellent condition, some minor marks on the top from play, and a few minor builder marks. Overall I’d say this is 8.8/10. Great custom uke, excellent player, but not a Moore Bettah or LFdM.

SOLD!.

Has a sweet/warm sound with full, even tone. Here’s a sound sample with an eclectic set of strings (Aquila A & would low G, D’addario T2 C & E).

Wow Hodge, that is a stunner. That trapeze tail is the nicest I've seen. Brings out the glow in the cedar and koa. Me thinks it will go fast.

I love the look of this. Amazing grain on the back and sides too. That bridge style looks so graceful. It's a stunner!

I'd say that this one was meant to sound much different than a Moore Bettah or LFdM.

This one really sounds like a true jazz ukulele to my ear. Very beautiful.

Hodge,
What a great looking and sounding uke.
Also, have you been practicing/playing more recently? It sounds like your playing has been improving over the last few recordings.
Please take this as a compliment.
