This beautiful Beau Hannam 19″ Grand Selmer ukulele was meticulously handcrafted with its back and sides of gorgeous Amazon Rosewood. The soundboard is a set of master grade Sinker Redwood that is absolutely stunning with a applied sunburst and a nitrocellulose high gloss finish. Gorgeous jet black Gaboon ebony wood fretboard with a “stepped” end and an African Blackwood bridge with pyramid appointments attest to the skill and craftsmanship of the luthier. A slotted headstock with top and back Brazilian Rosewood headstock plate and Honduran Mahogany wood neck with sculpted heel showcase two more appointments on this beautiful ukulele. Selmer shaped body with cutaway and side sound port, this beautiful Grand Selmer ukulele incorporates a fan bracing system to allow for maximum excitement on the sound board as the energy is transferred through the strings and in to the saddle, the bridge, and ultimately the soundboard itself. Black mother-of-pearl rectangle position markers. Ebony wood top and back binding with a rosette that has been crafted of roughly 10 different woods in a mosaic ring. Elegant top, back, and side purfling lines for aesthetic appeal. Professional Black nickel Rubner geared tuners for precise and smooth tuning.
This instrument is absolutely wonderful in its preferable tuning of Bb tuning with its 19″ scale from nut to saddle. Excellent projection and sustain. The instrument is well balanced with a nice warm sound and bold low end. This wood combination of Amazon Rosewood and Sinker Redwood coupled with the longer 19″ scale and Bb tuning, lends itself to a full sound with great breathe. A premium example of a handcrafted ukulele that exhibits wonderful playability, tone, and craftsmanship. ID#190073
