Testimonials

"Thank you x 1000 for this wonderful instrument! It's everything I wanted and much more- the dynamic range seems infinite. Such a joy to play and discover- I just noticed the ovangkol inlay on the side of the fingerboard at fret 12 a little while ago and am still grinning about it!" - Eric Ulvog, RM-OOOO, 2016

"Your uke is a real gem!!!!... I love the sound as I would characterize it as warm and mellow as opposed to bright and almost strident as lots of lower quality high G ukes sound."  - Kimo Hussey, Tenor Uke LS, 2016

"Awesome talent coming out of South Dakota... He's a thinking man's luthier..."  - Michael Chock, Hana Lima la Ukulele Making School, 2016

"Josh took the time to sit down and have a consultation with me. We chatted about how I wanted my custom to sound, how I wanted it to play, and how I wanted it to look. He absolutely delivered on everything! He still cares about my guitar after it left his shop, and that is just one more reason I am proud to play a J. Rieck custom design."  -Craig Pederson, 000, 2016
