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.
