Extremely rare Custom Kamaka Spruce Top Tenor Ukulele handcrafted by the only name synonymous with ‘ukulele’ worldwide, the Kamaka Ukulele Co. This gorgious piece plays amazingly and remains in 9 out of perfect 10 condition with no repairs, no cracks, no nicks or dings, etc. It is immaculate with only some very light fingerprint marks on the fretboard but that is it.
Quartersawn spruce top with Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides for a wonderful tonal and aesthetic combination. The clarity and warmth of the tones are truly remarkable on this piece. The spruce top adds great clarity and makes for some crisp highs whereas the koa back and sides are perfectly quartersawn and add to great projection and sustain of the instrument. Wide-breath mid-range and lows as well. This beauty also boasts a gorgeous top rope marquerty on the soundboard and a matching rope rosette, a top and back rosewood binding with top, back, and side wood purfling for added aesthetic appeal. This is a character trait of a true custom ukulele from Kamaka. Ebony wood fretboard and bridge with a matching ebony wood headstock plate and an abalone shell ‘KK’ on headstock with mother-of-pearl position markers on positions 5, 7, 10, and 12 on the fretboard. Lastly, there is a Matrix active pick up for a quick plug-and-play feature as well.
A phenomenal player ukulele. Excellent projection and sustain. Tremendous clarity and very well balanced notes all the way up the neck. If you are looking for one of the best, this is certainly one of them!
