New Natural Series Traditional Tenor November 2019 SOLD
My Natural Series instruments differ from my Select Artist Series instruments. The Natural Series is built with a variety of pieces of wood, often from different trees. They are a showcase for the varieties of koa colors and patterns. Some have slotted headstocks and no body binding except on the neck, which is bound. However, this particular ukulele does have Milo wood binding with a black/white/black purfling on the top. The finish is a mat lacquer instead of high gloss, showing the nature of the wood grain and pores in a more natural way.They all have sound ports and come with hardshell cases.
This tenor ukulele has curly Hawaiian koa top, back, and sides, Hawaiian Koa wood fretboard and bridge, abalone rosette and bridge inlay, abalone heel cap, gold plated German made Schaller tuners with custom koa , fretboard bound in Hawaii grown Pheasant Wood, slotted headstock with curly koa headcap, and Hilo Strings. Neck is Spanish cedar with a carbon fiber reinforcement rod. 16' radius on the fretboard. I use black Micarta for the nut and saddle. Low string action, making it easy to play. It comes with a Mi-Si /Fishman under saddle pickup installed. This version is the active/no battery rechargeable internal endpin preamp with a Fishman under saddle pickup element. Very reliable, lightweight rechargeable system Reharges in 30 seconds for 6-8 hours of playing time.The Natural Series are true no frills player's instruments. I build 2 different tenor shapes. This ukulele is my Traditional shape. Comes with a quality hardshell case. For more info e-mail email@example.com Thanks for looking!
