Paniolo Tenor Ukulele - Sold
This is the Paniolo Tenor Ukulele and it is the the second delivery to Hale Ukulele this week. Ric was down to only one tenor ukulele so my latest push is to get him a little inventory before the holidays. I’m re-embracing the classic ukulele shape with these latest instruments.
The finished appearance just looks “rustic” to me and with the addition of my red and black “rope-style” accents it just screams “cowboy”. Yee-haw!
The body is built from a perfectly matched set of golden Koa Wood. This particular Koa has a bunch of little golden “eyes” or maybe water droplets in it in lieu of strong curl. I don’t think I’ve used a set of koa yet that I thought didn’t have a unique appearance–this included.
The back strip continues the use of the rope-style accent.
Same for the Head Stock.
The accent wood is Hawaiian Mango, the neck is Honduran Mahogany. In addition, there is India Rosewood binding, an India Rosewood fret board and bridge, Black Gotoh Tuners, Romero Flourocarbon low “G” strings, and a Crossrock case–Yipee!
I can just here those pipi mooing contentedly to the soothing melodies coming from this Paniolo Tenor Ukulele.
