Black is Beautiful Baby!

I just  finished this Black Limba ukulele.  It’s a tenor, by the way.   Haven’t made one from this wood in awhile since I have not had a reliable source for wood.  This wood has a  really pleasant tap tone and I especially like the varied appearances–absolutely no two instruments look the same.  Most of these instruments present a full, mid-range sound with excellent sustain and volume.  The neck is Black Limba as well and light.  In keeping  with the African theme I used African Wenge for binding combined with a vintage-style purfling to accent.  The finger board and bridge are Madagascar Ebony.  I expect this instrument to perform well with any string combination.
