I have a good selection with over 50 different ukes in stock - new & used. Some are pictured below. All are setup properly before sale. Other shops don't do this but you don't want any instrument straight from the factory as the action is usually too high resulting in a difficult playing experience and out of tune fretting . Stock changes frequently so call for latest arrivals.
This uke is made from mahogany that is a t least 50 years old.
Ukulele No.1 from Thomas Johnson has a flame maple top and birds eye maple back and sides.
Made by Chris Delia at Carillion guitars this uke has Euro flamed maple back and sides & an Alpine spruce top. It is in excellent condition.
Laka bass ukulele VUB60EA £219 (with free gig bag)
Made using a combination of mahogany and sapele and featuring a mahogany neck and fretless rosewood fingerboard, the VUB60EA Bass Ukulele is easy to play and provides impressive tone both acoustically and also through the onboard Fishman Clásica II preamp system.
Alvarez Ukuleles have been carefully designed to deliver an open sounding and responsive instrument with good projection, volume and fine tone.
All Alvarez ukes are constructed with a dovetail neck joint for optimal strength and transfer of energy between the neck and body. The bracing design is a modification on traditional fan style braces to optimize response. The response is also aided by a solid “slotted” rosewood bridge, which enhances projection and helps to make string changes easier and quicker.
Other appointments and features include quality-seasoned tonewoods, real bone nut and saddles, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and premium tuners.

These heavy full-grain hide leather picks combine substance with the soft touch that only a natural product can give. Strumming your ukulele or banjo with a Jumping Cow pick opens up a whole new world of sound - warm, consistent and mellow with no lack of volume or tone.
P.S. Why "Jumping Cow"? Well, many of you will be aware that the word "uku-lele" is the Hawaiian for "jumping flea", inspired by the players' fingers moving so quickly around the fretboard while playing. These picks are made of leather and so we've substituted the "flea" for "cow" - simple! And it's better than one early suggestion - "moo-ke-lele"!!
