Sometimes I just get tired of looking at “brown” woods. Sooooo, to change up the look, one of the many woods that I have used is Mango. Here, you will see an asymmetric sound hole tenor that I constructed out of figured and fairly colorful Mango. This wood doesn’t really tone tap well but seems to provide an instrument with volume with some favor to base and mid-range notes pending the strings that you use. Definitely distinctive and not “brown”. I think the Paua Abalone purfling adds a bit of tastful bling to the mix. Check it out!
