The latest delivery to Hale Ukulele is a Curly Koa Pineapple Ukulele.
Curly Koa Pineapple Ukulele
Ric wanted some standard builds so I accommodated on this tenor pineapple ukulele. I used some blondish curly koa for the body. I think this is the last set that I may have with that dark wood zigzag pattern in it. Kinda cool!
Blondish curly Koa
My standard build uses an abalone or wood rosette. I used abalone here and accented with a green and black fiber.
Abalone rosette and colored purfling accents are a standard.
The accent wood is African Zebra Wood. The neck and bridge are India Rosewood as is the binding.
Blond Koa just glows!
That’s about it. This instrument is super light in weight and even with new strings it has a very nice tonality. I think this one is ripe!
