This is Hale Ukulele owner Ric’s New Super Tenor Ukulele. It looks a bit like the last one that he got from me but he sold that one and wanted another for his collection.
Ancient Spruce Sound Board
Same materials as before: ancient spruce sound board, curly ambrosia maple back and sides, ambrosia maple neck, ebony species fret board and bridge, blue abalone purfling with blue/black fiber accents. Curly maple like this doesn’t get much better.
Super Curly Ambrosia Maple
I added a “makau” inlay to the tongue of the fret board. This inlay is made from paua abalone and white mother-of-pearl. And, just for fun, I made the lower bout heal graft with a blue paua abalone laminate. Ya just can’t have enough blue!
Paua Abalone Purfling and Makau
I’m really getting into the maple ukes of late. I have other “looks” in this wood, a bunch of cool ideas and I’m eager to try them out. All of these maple instruments have had really good volume and wonderful warm tones.
Paua Abalone Lower Bout Heal Graft
Ric’s New Super Tenor Ukulele turned out great. I think I should save some a set for my own collection before it’s all gone!
