A beautiful new Custom Vento Soprano Ukulele built on the island of Hawai’i. This one was just completed a few days ago and it is absolutely stunning in appearance, modeled after a vintage soprano ukulele from the 1930s but with a few modern day amenities such a a bound fingerboard, geared tuners, and a high gloss poreless finish to blend two worlds together for those who love that classic look of the vintage ukulele with modern day amenities.
This Custom Vento Soprano Ukulele has its front, back, and sides handcrafted of East-Indian Rosewood that has been perfectly quartersawn. The neck has been carved from solid Honduran mahogany wood for added stability and increased sustain on the instrument. The fretboard was crafted of Macassar Ebony wood with a matching Ebony wood bridge. East-Indian Rosewood bound fretboard for smooth play up and down the neck with a classic tie-bridge construction at the bridge. Mother-of-pearl ‘Vento’ logo inlay on the headstock with standard position markers on 5, 7, 10, and 12 for quick reference. The tuners are professional Grover open-geared tuners with black buttons and a 14:1 gear ratio for precise tuning. Bone nut and saddle and a high gloss poreless nitrocellulose finish.
This beauty was handcrafted with a vintage 1930s ukulele design in mind and has a classic vintage appeal tonally and aesthetically. Wonderful tonal range with crisp and balanced highs as well. Nows your chance to have a phenomenal player instrument from one of Hawaii’s hidden luthiers, Fred Vento of the Big Island of Hawai’i. Only a few instruments are handcrafted yearly.
