Tasmanian Blackwood Tenor Ukulele

      Bonzer!  Tasmanian Blackwood is Koa’s cousin from the South Pacific.  Same plant/tree (acacia melanoxylon)  but different growing environment.  We don’t see a lot of this wood, but I was fortunate to score on some really tasty and old stuff that was in storage here in San Diego.  It is a little darker than what you see here with the flash.    In order to keep the ” Dark Knight”  look, I made the neck from African Wenge.  Since I do not stain wood, it is the blackest wood I could find locally.  Looks cool.  This will be for sale at the San Diego Ukulele Festival (www.sandiegoukulelefestival.com) next month.
