Occasionally I get a request for some unusual wood combinations. Here is a tenor ukulele, just completed, made with Australian Lacewood for sound board and back. The back is laser cut embellished with the customer”s artwork. The sides are Hawaiian Koa. The binding is Oregon curly Maple. The fingerboard and bridge are African figured Bubinga, and the peg head laminate is Australian Queensland Burl. It works. It’s different. It’s also a lefty. The sound is great, I think, especially with the new Nylgut strings, low “G”. The Lacewood is a killer sound wood but a real bitch to work with– just in case you’re interested. Of course, this instrument is amplified with K&K.
