Mango On Mango Tenor Ukulele - Sold

I’m so behind.  This instrument went out last week and I’ve been waiting for a response before posting.  This super tenor ukulele is an new all-the-same-wood adventure.  This is the Mango On Mango Tenor Ukulele.

It’s All About The Wood

Body:  All Hawaiian curly Mango from Kamuela Hardwoods in Waimea Hawaii.  These guys are the greatest and have been very accommodating for my Hawaiian wood adventures.  This is one of the first instruments that I am using woods either from the same location or tree.   The bracing is still spruce and mahogany.

Curly, beeswing Hawaiian mango.

Binding:  Hawaiian curly Mango.

Neck:  Hawaiian curly Mango laminations.   There is still a massive carbon fiber truss rod in the neck.  I save these cut-offs, both dark and light, and now have repurposed here.  Sanded epoxy finish.

All mango laminate neck.

Fret Board and Bridge:  Although the client was wanting some type of burl wood I thought it best to stick to something tried and true.  This is Brazilian Rosewood.  Radiused is the norm for me now.

I’ll have to quote the client here:   “This beautiful uke sounds and plays just as good as it looks–all the way up the neck both single notes and chords sound big, full, round and sweet.  It’s a fun an inspiring instrument to play!” Oh sweet Mango On Mango Tenor Ukulele!
