Circa 2011 – Custom Moore Bettah Ukulele. Beautiful custom Moore Bettah Tenor Ukulele handcrafted by master luthier Chuck Moore of the Big Island, HI. Chuck handcrafts some of not only the most aesthetically pleasing ukuleles available on the market but also professional recording level instruments for both the professional musician and recreational player.
This wonderful and extremely rare Moore Bettah tenor ukulele was crafted from the finest materials. Gorgeous AAAA Hawaiian Koa wood top, back, and sides, Macassar Ebony wood fretboard and bridge, matching Macassar Ebony wood top and back binding with abalone shell rosette. The neck was hand-carved from Spanish Cedar wood and is carbon fiber reinforced for added stability. Classic design with no side sound port. The soundboard and back of the body boasts an elegant purfling line. Gorgeous artistic headstock inlay of a ‘Palm Tree’ handcrafted of curly Hawaiian Koa wood and abalone shell for aesthetic appeal. Musicians grade high gloss finish buffed out to perfection.
Rich and complex tones with excellent sustain, clarity, and projection. The instrument is very well balanced tonally all the way up the neck and spot on intonation as well. Highly recommended player piece. And this is as good as it gets for recording artists, weekend giggers, and the uke-lover at heart!
