KU212, Tenor with Myrtle and Fir

$575, includes shipping to lower continental US

I received this Douglas Fir soundboard from Chuck Moore (Moore Bettah Ukuleles) in Hawaii, and made this Tenor with it. He called it waterfall fir because of the grain pattern. I combined it with some curly grained Myrtle from the Pacific Northwest. The tone bars are floating i.e. not touching the cross bracing to increase the flexibility of the soundboard and attached with hot hide glue. Makes for a clean crisp sound.

  • Curly patterned Myrtle back and sides
  • Waterfall patterned Douglas Fir soundboard with inlaid black rosette
  • Ebony fingerboard with Pua Abalone dots, 14th fret connection at the body, 18 frets total
  • Corian nut and saddle, fingerboard 1.5″ wide at the nut
  • ebony saddle
  • Grover Sta tite tuners
  • Aquila super nylgut strings
  • Satin lacquer finish
