Here’s a revitalization of my original Hula Hips tenor pattern now over 12 years old. Based on the original Martin Tenor but with a wider lower bout at 10.25 inches. I have modernized by changing the depth of the instrument and moving sound hole up making for a larger sound board. Kanani wanted something different in woods so we constructed of Sycamore with curly Koa binding. Neck is Bass wood, and accents are spalted African Mbangu. I also used Mexican Granadillo for an arched fret board and bridge. The sound board is Canadian “vertical scratch” bearclaw Sitka Spruce. The peg head inlay was designed by Kanani.
