Honu Tenor Ukulele
Recently delivered is Sara’s Honu Tenor Ukulele. Blond, curly Koa and Blue Paua abalone are the highlights for sure, but Larry Robinson’s “Honu” head stock inlay in bronze mother-of-pearl is the icing-on-the-cake.
I added Sara’s initials on the fret board in white mother-of-pearl. Since I wanted a totally black finger board, I used a new manufactured ebony imported by Luthiers Mercantile. This material manufactured in England is made from wood, totally black, and works and sounds like real ebony. I really don’t like to stain wood!
The accent wood is Australian Mallee burl.
Amplification by Mi-Si.
The Honu Tenor Ukulele was a fun project for a great Texas musician.
