Curly, Burly, Quilty, Naughty Myrtle
No rules in ukulele! Just keep it fun! Here’s a Hawaiian ukulele that made me smile a lot while working on it. George really got into some new, freaking gorgeous Oregon Myrtlewood that I received and couldn’t resist. It’s all Myrtle with a Koa “T” band figured black walnut neck. The finger board and bridge are Mexican Ziricote. The back strip and binding are curly Koa and the accents are Vanuatu Maidou burl. I used PHD low “G” strings. Oh yeah, the whale is black and white mother of pearl. Upon receipt last week George made the following comments: “this is a spectacular uke! Gorgeous look and outstanding sound.” Thanks George. I couldn’t ask for more and, yes, I’m still smiling!
