Here’s the second in the trio of tenor ukuleles delivered recently. This is The Kitty Tenor Ukulele.
Dark, curly koa
The woods for each instrument were personally selected. This is a nice dark, curly koa selection that I have used before. Koa just keeps on giving with such a huge variety of colors and grains. Wait until I show you the next one–no two alike!
Plumeria flowers and hibiscus in abalone and mother-of pearl
Kitty asked for a few flowers and decided on these small triple plumeria clusters with the addition of a hibiscus flower on the tongue of the finger board.
Good grain match on this set of Hawaiian koa wood
I kept the rest of the build similar to the first (The Roberta Tenor Ukulele posted last week) with a Honuran mahogany neck, Amazon rosewood finger board and bridge and Asian satin wood burl for the accents. Kitty also selected green and black purfling in the rosewood trim.
