Mya-Moe Ukuleles History
Gordon & Char Mayer and Aaron Keim are the luthiers who build all Mya-Moe Ukuleles. They have combined expertise in design, engineering, music, and lutherie. They both have masters degrees in engineering. Gordon has been building guitars for 7 years. Char is a professional musician. Before building guitars, Gordon was a wood-turning artist, giving him extended knowledge of different woods & their properties.
(2017 Update) - Gordon and Char Mayer are retiring from building June 2018 and ALL build slots are taken. So if you have a Mya-Moe hang on to it.
Char’s artistic bent was expressed in hand-pieced Roman shades. Together, they hand-craft each instrument, a culmination of their combined educations & experiences in engineering, art & music.
