My name is Rod Ruggiero. I am a classically trained musician who has taken up Ukulele making. These wonderful instruments are fun and easy to play!
The instruments I make are fine musical instruments, made from solid wood and have beautiful tonal qualities, and good looks. They are constructed by me here in Hawaii using the Spanish method - the soundboard is attached to the neck, and the sides are inserted into slots in the neck. This is the traditional technique used on Classical Spanish guitars. The result is a strong, responsive instrument.
