One of my latest projects required Peony Flower inlays. I”m not a big fan of sound board inlays because it limits my ability to custom thickness the soundboard ,but who am I to say no–no rules in ukulele. So this is my interpretation of the clients requests. I can’t say that my photography is up to snuff on this project, but I think that you will get the idea. This “Ku’u Ipo” concert ukulele features a more vintage shape with rounded lower bout and a 15 3/4″ scale. The instrument is made from moderately curly Koa with Brazilian Lacewood accents and Peghead Tuners. The Peony flowers are white and gold mother-of-pearl with petals of green and paua abalone.
