Curly Koa with a quality known as Chattoyance. This wood has the ability to reach out and grab you. The changing light reveals a depth impossible to describe, but the pictures come close. This ALL KOA cutaway design features a Bear Claw Sitka Spruce top plate, Rosewood fretboard and tailpiece, and a slotted headstock. The tuning machines are by Rubner, handmade in Germany with a 15:1 gear ratio for precise tuning. This uke is 'Stage Ready' with Fishman electronics; the best in the business. A solid curly Koa neck, 18 frets, and a Rosewood bridge complete the details of this outstanding beauty. The Curly Koa chosen is nearly the best I could dream of, and I had the hardest time waiting a few extra months for the wood to settle in to the neighborhood vibe... before getting started. I was so excited to work with it! A year more in the desert, and now here we are. Shazam for looks, but strong and bright when you get to playing. Completed 8/1/17
This one really has it all... distinctive, unique styling, outstanding woods brought together artfully for all the senses to enjoy.
