New Black Walnut

Got this Claro Black Walnut from my good friends at Gilmer Woods in Oregon.  I’ve topped this uke with a 60+ year old Sitka Spruce that was rescued from the Gibson factory.  I left the age stain down the middle just to give it some credibility.  The binding is Hawaiian Koa, the neck is Oregon Black Walnut, the finger board and bridge are of Madagascar Ebony and the accents are Oregon Myrtle.  The headstock laminate is Australia Queensland Eucalyptus Burl.  I’m using Gotoh 4:1 tuners.  Probably going to string with Jason Arimoto’s PHD’s in low G.  I love this wood!
