Curly Mango Baritone Please
I’d like a Curly Mango Baritone Please. That was the request and fortunately I have lots of curly sets on stock at the present. This particular set of Curly Mango has a little bit of everything–good chocolate colors, some spalt and lots of interesting curl. You just can’t have enough curl–ya know!
This is a straight forward build with a couple of exceptions. Instead of the usual India Rosewood for binding I am using a subtle Curly Koa with simple black purfling. The sound hole rosette and sound board purfling are a simple black and white. We’re showcasing the curly mango wood.
And, the radiused fret board and bridge are ebony species. The radius is primarily because of the request for an extra wide neck and string spacing.
I almost always use African Black Limba for the necks on the mango ukes. For some reason it hasn’t failed to look good with almost every different look of the mango. I am using a slightly rare Sindora Burl wood for the accents here.
Black Gotoh tuners and Romero flourocarbon strings with a Tomastik CF27 for the “G”.
This pup has a big warm sound and is extremely easy to play. I’m sure it will be enjoyed for some time to come. So, gimme another Curly Mango Baritone Please!
