The Inspiration

There is nothing we can say that will do this ukulele justice! It is absolutely gorgeous. We decided on a traditional design with minimal bindings and adornments to allow the spalted maple to be the masterpiece. It's come up a real treat. We love how the indigo blue pearl rosette finishes off the look and gives it our signature Bondi feel.

Maple makes a wonderful tonewood with deep lows and sweet highs, add our perfect setup and you have yourself a uke you will truly love until the day you pass this one onto your grandkids.

Poor Craftsmanship

As a ukulele player and collector for over 25 years I was really excited about my first Bondi ukulele. I had read and seen nothing but good reviews on the instruments. I recently purchased a tenor which looks and feels as described online only to find several disappointing, important issues such as the frets not being in or holding tune after you move up above the 6th or 7th fret and at the 12th all four strings being way off(more than a few cents) barely even playable if your looking to do more than just play basic first and second position chords. I have never had issues like this with ukuleles even a quarter of the cost by better known companies. There were also several little bubbles in the gloss finish, worn/uneven areas amongst the frets. It came with a “QC(quality control)” passed sticker on the back of the head which is really concerning? I guess they never checked if the neck and frets were really in tune to play all the way up and down. Most companies would consider something with these issues a “B-stock“ instrument and would never sell without addressing these issues upfront.

I purchased a spalted maple tenor. The Bondi’s website describes it as “solid spalted maple” . What I received was laminated . Also the fret board was sharp and had many finish chips up and down on both sides. Not the quality you would expect for a $299. price. I sent email and explained my disappointment and questioned the whole solid vs laminated issue.I received a courteous reply ,but not a real explanation as to why their web site is lying.I sent the ukulele back and was informed they could not send me a replacement . But oddly enough when I went on to their website it showed the spalted maple tenors in stock. Odd?? This company seems to me like some well marketed fluff. And have lost any future business from me.

Great looking Uke.... feels really comfortable to hold and to play on... I think it sounds wonderful. All these things just make me want to pick it up and play on it.

The case is really good looking too. Very well padded, snug and secure. I must admit though, I've not used it much so far as I keep the uke out all the time.

Delivery was very quick. It was very well packed.

The customer service is 5 star too.. They kept me informed of the delivery and other info. They are extremely easy to talk to.

So, very happy with this product and services and would definitely recommend Bondi Ukuleles to future ukers.

So great

I live my spalted maple tenor ukulele. It took 6 days to order, specifically choose my ukulele and have it delivered from Australia. I’m really impressed. And to top it all off they gave me a very well made padded bag. Before it arrived I purchased some strap buttons and installed myself as I like a strap. I will buy another from this company again. Great job to you and your company. Thank you.
