This tenor ukulele was purchased by Olukai (www.olukai.com) as part of it’s contribution for this year’s Surf Industry Manufacturers Association annual Waterman”s Ball (www.sima.com)l silent auction. I was pleased to collaborate with ocean artist Wade Koniakowsky (www.koniakowsky.com) this year to provide a tenor ukulele showcasing our art. This ukulele is fabricated from premium curly Tasmanian Blackwood–Koa’s southern hemisphere cousin–and a Canadian Sitka Spruce top featuring Wade’s artwork. This ukulele is definitely a one-of-a-kind collector’s instrument. I was unsure of final sound quality during construction but was more than impressed with the pleasing sound it produced upon completion. I already have my next project in the works.
