Circa 2012 – 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 handcrafted with a simple but elegant theme in mind. Gorgeous musicians grade Hawaiian Koa wood top, back, and sides, East-Indian Rosewood fretboard and bridge, Maple wood and Rosewood top and back rope binding with matching rope wood rosette. The neck was hand-carved from Honduras Mahogany wood and is carbon fiber reinforced for added stability. Side sound port for monitor-like experience bound in East-Indian Rosewood. The soundboard and side of the body boasts an elegant purfling line. Mother-of-pearl shell inlaid in positions 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 for quick reference. High gloss finish.
Bold tones with a very full sound. Excellent sustain with exceptional note separation, 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! ID#:180206
