About us

The Yudelele is hand-crafted for the traveler, the adventurer, the passionate, the lazy, introverts, extroverts, for everyone.

It’s a small portable guitar built for quality sound combined with ultra mobility. The creator of Yudelele, Yude Andiko, set out on a mission to create the a small yet powerful guitar he could take with him everywhere. From the comfort of his own home in a hammock, to the vast forest of Indonesia.

“I wanted to be able to play anywhere. In my hammoc at home, a train, bus, plane or even in the car when I’m stuck in traffic.”

Yude Andiko

Yude went to work with craftsmen in his native Java and adopted home of Bali, creating sample after sample, testing them out on the road whilst perfecting the all round quality and the instrument.

The main workshop is nestled amidst the rice fields of the guitar village of Sukoharjo on the island of Java. There, our talented guitar makers were taught how to earn more by producing a higher quality product. The workshop is open and breezy and our staff work regular hours and receive a better wage. Factory tours are available with Yude upon request.

This instrument is a labour of love, a product of years of research and development. Hand crafted by the finest wood carvers in Bali, each model produced is identified by an individual serial number. Yudelele is designed by a musician for musicians. All models have built in piezo pickup, ebony or rosewood fret board, maple wood inlays and bone nut and saddle creating a sturdy and full sound.

“Basically,
it’s the perfect travel guitar.”

Yude Andiko

The perfect travel guitar; available with custom made lightweight and hard travel cases incorporating pandan leaves and batik in their design. Five versions are available; the Ubud, the Gili, the Jogja, the Bangko Bangko, the Labuan Bajo and the Canggu models – each named and styled after the destinations which inspired and shaped its sound. Great for beginners, bohemians, children and chillers.
