Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar

Kings’ Shops welcomes Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar to its collection of luxury and boutique stores. Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar offers some of the finest `ukuleles found on the island.

Founded in 2012 by Robert Yates, a local musician and luthier here on the Big Island of Hawai`i, Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar is fast becoming the `ukulele shop of choice for many local players. By teaming up with fellow luthier Sam Li, Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar is able to offer fine handcrafted instruments using only the finest solid tone woods and building them to exacting specifications and standards.

The guiding vision behind Hawaiian Ukulele and Guitar was to create a `ukulele and guitar shop for everyone from the most seasoned musician to the beginner. The shop offers fine handcrafted Hawaiian-style `ukulele and guitars made from the finest woods available, at a price that is still affordable to the average enthusiast, as well as more moderately priced instruments of high quality and playability, making the joy of music accessible to people of all ages.
