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.
This one really has it all... distinctive, unique styling, outstanding woods brought together artfully for all the senses to enjoy.
