Up and comer Jonah Price gets his hands on his newly strung up cut-a-way koa tenor. Jonah dictated the dimension of this instrument and also designed his fret board logo. He also requested a whale inlay for head stock and accepted my design for a humpback whale in black and white mother-of-pearl. These photos are kind of candid and shot in my shop but hopefully reflect the moment.
Oh, the instrument is all koa and was the last of a piece that I also made his dad’s ukulele out of per Jonah’s request. Purfling and back strip are paua abalone and binding is East India Rosewood. Logo is done in white mother-of-pearl. Amplification is K&K’s under sound board twin mini internal. Fret board and bridge are the last of Madagascar Ebony. Accents are Hawaiian mango.
Keep your eyes peeled for Jonah! I think you will be hearing and seeing a lot more of this talented young guy.
