Moon and Petroglyph Tenor Ukulele

I’m calling this one the Moon and Petroglyph Tenor Ukulele.  The Koa is very similar to the instrument posted October of 2017 with mild curl and a bold sapwood center strip.  I took the opportunity on this instrument to add my laser cut petroglyph detail to the back.

The blue pau abalone Hawaiian Moon inlay on the fret board adds semi-custom artwork to the instrument at a very reasonable cost.  No two are the same.

Instead of red purfling accents, I used magenta.   The rosette is blue paua abalone.

The rest of the build remains standard with India Rosewood binding, Ebony species fretboard and bridge, Gold Gotoh UPT tuners, Gold “evo” frets, and Afzalia Burl accent woods.

Oh, this instrument went to Hale Ukulele in San Diego.
