Krazy Koa Kimo Tenor Ukulele - Sold
I just got strings on this new puppy. This is the Krazy Koa Kimo Tenor Ukulele.
Body: Hawaiian curly Koa. I’d like to think that I build with some of the most unusual looking woods in the industry. I believe that this set of koa wood fits that profile and was probably overlooked by some builders because it just didn’t fit that profile of straight and even curl. Maybe the grain pattern was just a bit to wild? Whatever! I like it, and it’s a one-of-a-kind.
Fret Board and Bridge: a certain South American rosewood.
Neck: Honduran Mahogany with curly mango laminate and carbon truss rod. Sanded finish and super smooth.
Binding, Rosette, and Accent woods: Curly Hawaiian Mango with black/blue fiber accents.
The Rest of the Build
Nut and Saddle: Unbleached Bone.
Fret Markers: White MOP
Tuners: Gotoh UPT
Case: Crossrock Fiberglass.
Strings: Pepe Romero flourocarbon with wound low “G”
It’s a looker for sure. I think sound-wise it’s typical of Koa with plenty of brights and good low’s with the wound low “G” sring. This is a super tenor and with the added volume there is enhanced sustain and volume.
I know, I’m a bit crazy, but I can’t resist these woods–Krazy Koa Kimo Tenor Ukulele.
