Tenor ukulele in makore and spruce



1 in stock

This is the first production model of my new tenor ukulele body style. It features a more convex curve to the lower bout, more rounded shoulders and a return to my trademark tapered headstock, here in a slightly larger form as compared to my concert and soprano models.

The body is made in a wood I haven’t used before – Makore, paired with an Engelmann spruce top. The makore is a close-textured wood which has a nice deep reflective quality to the finish.

The neck is a very striking 3-layered construction with a centre stripe of curly maple, surrounded by reclaimed Utile wood.

Full specification:

Body: Makore back/sides; Engelmann spruce top. Black edge binding and pinstripe rosette to the soundhole.

Neck: 3-ply construction in reclaimed utile and curly figured maple.

Fretboard: Granadilla with small mother of pearl dots at 5, 7, 10th and 12th frets. Side dot at 7th fret.

Bridge: Granadilla

Nut & saddle: Corian

Tuners: Grover 9NB geared

Finish: hand-rubbed truoil varnish

Strings: Fluorocarbon
