I've had the privilege to play a lot of different ukuleles over the years. Periodically I'll showcase a different builder, luthier worth checking out.
How one man went from chasing start-up and technology jobs in Silicon Valley to creating a thriving craftsman shop making custom ukuleles for the likes of Eddie Vedder.
( from listing's site ) - Gordon & Char Mayer are the luthiers who build all Mya-Moe ukuleles. They have combined expertise in design, engineering, music, and lutherie. They both have masters degrees in engineering. Gordon has been building guitars for 7 years. Char is a professional musician. Before building guitars, Gordon was a wood-turning artist, giving him extended knowledge of different woods & their properties. Char’s artistic bent was expressed in hand-pieced Roman shades. Together, they hand-craft each instrument, a culmination of their combined educations & experiences in engineering, art & music.
