Pride and Mango Tenor Ukulele - Sold

My kinda build is this Pride and Mango Tenor Ukulele–it’s a Hawaiian thing.

It’s All About the Wood

BodyPride of India from Hawaii.  Looks a little like  Honduran mahogany but with a bit more grain pattern and distinct curl.  This is Lagerstroemia speciosa or Crepe Myrtle.  This must have been one freak’n big tree because it usually is seen as a small tree or bush.  This is the only set of this beautiful wood that I have.  Tap tone and density wise it is similar to Koa in my opinion.  I know, who would have thought that this wood makes a great ukulele.  This is a super tenor shape.

Nothing but the basics here.  This is my kinda build lately.  Nice to look at with no frills and with a very approachable sound and playability (super low action).  Summer’s not over yet, especially with this Pride and Mango Tenor Ukulele.
