The Kitty Tenor Ukulele

Here’s the second in the trio of tenor ukuleles delivered recently.   This is The Kitty Tenor Ukulele.

Dark, curly koa

The woods for each instrument were personally selected.  This is a nice dark, curly koa selection that I have used before.  Koa just keeps on giving with such a huge variety of colors and grains.  Wait until I show you the next one–no two alike!

Plumeria flowers and hibiscus in abalone and mother-of pearl

Kitty asked for a few flowers and decided on these small triple plumeria clusters with the addition of a hibiscus flower on the tongue of the finger board.

Good grain match on this set of Hawaiian koa wood

I kept the rest of the build similar to the first (The Roberta Tenor Ukulele posted last week) with a Honuran mahogany neck, Amazon rosewood finger board and bridge and Asian satin wood burl for the accents.  Kitty also selected green and black purfling in the rosewood trim.

There you go–The Kitty Tenor Ukulele!
