Welcome to my website. Mahalo for your interest. I build custom, handcrafted Hawaian 'ukuleles and guitars. I specialize in building 'ululeles and guitars using the finest Hawaiian Koa and other Hawaiian exotic hardwoods.
I would like to let everyone know we are in the process of moving to Southern California, I am already here and my new shop is up and running and I am back to work.
After 15 wonderful years on the Big Island of Hawai`i, we had to make a difficult decision to move in order to be closer to family.
There is much I will miss about our home in Ka`u, but it is also beautiful here in Escondido, and besides being able to take care of family obligations. I will be able to see a lot more of my friends and clients from the Mainland. I encourage anyone who is in the area and would like to touch base to give me a call.
If anyone has an issue with any fretted instrument and would like my input, feel free to make contact.
This is a big change, but we look forward to this as another adventure,
My new contact information:
Me ke aloha, Dennis Lake
Subscribe with me to get the current on news from my shop, Camps and Workshops I will be participating in, and any visits I make to Festivals on the Mainland. Also, any completed instruments that might be available for sale will be featured.
I promise your address will not be shared with anyone.
I played my Dennis Lake Pō Mahina double ported koa guitar in concert for the very first time last night. Its beautiful tone swept the theatre like a warm breeze. After I played the first few chords at sound check ......
Mahalo for building me such a great guitar - this is just what I was hoping for,
