Jorge Sandoval - handcrafted Instruments made in Venezuela

Jorge Sandoval is a master of Lutherie and very known in his home country Venezuela for his Cuatro Venezulano. We admire his Ukes in regard of tone, appearance and value. You'll get a fascinating masterpiece at a very attractive price.

This custom Uke comes with back and sides from Madagaskar Rosewood and a Cedar soundboard. The clear trebble of rosewood is combined with a present warmth of cedar. What a combination and what a sound!

The neck is of spanish cedar. The flat fretboard is easy to play. The slotted headstock design is unique and very attractive. The necks by Sandoval are not very slim.
The highgloss finish is not too solid but perfectly balanced with focus on tone. Decent details on the endblock as well as the slightly oval rosette making the appearance of this Uke outstanding from the crowd. This instrument will be shipped with a solid case

Note: Preowned instrument with huge price reduction due to some scratches in the soundboard.


This custom Uke comes with back and sides from Venezuelan Laurelwood and a German Spruce soundboard. The tone is well balanced and the light weight creates a present sound with very good projection. The neck is built from Mahagony and is not too thin. The slightly radiussed fretboard is easy to play. Gotoh Tuners keep the strings in tune.

This Sandoval Custom Tenor Ukulele comes with back and sides from Madagascar Rosewood and a German Spruce soundboard. The tone is well balanced and the light weight creates a present sound with very good projection. The neck is built from very light Cedrelo and is not too thin. The slightly radiussed fretboard is easy to play. Gotoh Tuners keep the strings in tune. The highgloss finish is not too solid but perfectly balanced with focus on tone. Decent details on the endblock as well as the offset soundhole making the appearance of this Uke outstanding from the crowd.

NOTE: The rosewood side has near the neck heel a very small crack. The varnish is not cracked. It comes from normal behaviour of rosewood. The part is fixed by the patch of the side soundport and the neck heel - so it can't get any bigger. Very Small issue but we reduced our price on that Ukulele.
