Circa 2010. Preowned. Custom Moore Bettah Ukulele. Beautiful custom Moore Bettah Soprano 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 soprano ukulele was crafted from the finest materials. Gorgeous master grade Hawaiian curly 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 Honduras Mahogany wood and is carbon fiber reinforced for added stability. Side sound port for monitor-like experience. The soundboard and back of the body boasts an elegant purfling line. Gorgeous artistic headstock inlay of a ‘Japanese Koi’ handcrafted of reconstructed stone and mother-of-pearl for aesthetic appeal. Beautiful high gloss nitrocellulose finish.
A big and bold sound for a little soprano with great clarity and projection. Rich and complex tones with excellent sustain as well. 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#200012
