(C.2017). New. An extremely rare full Custom G-String Tenor Ukulele that was handcrafted by master luthier, Derek Shimizu, of the legendary G-String Ukulele Co.
This gorgeous Custom G-String Tenor Ukulele was handcrafted of Hawaiian curly Koa wood back and sides with a musician’s grade Sitka spruce soundboard . Solid Honduran Mahogany wood neck for added stability and increased sustain, Ebony wood fretboard and bridge with a gorgeous faux tortoise shell top and back binding for an elegant appeal and Ebony wood headstock veneer bound in Hawaiian Koa wood in keeping with the theme of the instrument. The instrument also boasts a stunningly beautiful abalone shell top purfling and double Koa wood and matching abalone shell rosette with accent purling lines throughout the soundboard, back, fingerboard, and rosette of this amazing piece. Double curly Koa wood pick guards. The instrument uses professional closed-geared Gotoh machine tuners for precise tuning and has a pore less high gloss finish.
Excellent playability and wonderful clarity and sustain. I highly recommend G-String Ukuleles, they are wonderful instruments and are absolutely great playing instruments. Clean build. Light in weight. Wonderful tones.
