Tiger Myrtle and Ancient Spruce Concert

Post by Allen » Mon May 14, 2018 5:21 pm

This is combination is becoming a common request by clients wanting something really different. Luckily the colors work well together.

It's a 16" long neck concert tuned GCea. The fret board and head plate veneers are Honduran Rosewood. Bindings in curly Jarrah. A K&K Aloha twin pickup and a heap of Paua Shell. Polyurethane high gloss clear.

Hey Allen - what is your source for the paua shell that you are using for those fretboard inlays? They are very beautiful. Looks like a stained glass window. Of course, the rest of the uke is fabulous as well.
