Mango and Pineapple Tenor Ukulele

I just love these instruments made from mango wood.  Here is a new delivery to Hale Ukulele–the Mango and Pineapple Tenor Ukulele.

Mmmmmango wood. Gotta love it!

The wood is nice and curly but I really love the golds offset with the blacks in this particular set of mango.  Low density Mango really responds well to nylon string low tension making this instrument big and warm.

Golds, blacks and highly figured mango wood.

I purposely kept the embellishments to a minimum on this instrument with a simple black and red rope-style purfling and sound hole rosette being the exception.

The neck is African Limba and it matches the mango appearance almost perfectly.  I rarely come across mango of a dimension that I can use for necks.   Limba can be low density and lite weight and is much more stable than mango anyway.

African Limba wood neck–match!

That’s about it.  P is for pineapple, M is for mango–Mango and Pineapple Tenor Ukulele.
