A beautiful Custom William King Tenor Ukulele handcrafted in Austin, TX by master luthier William King in excellent original condition. This custom tenor ukulele is a special commission with a fourteen fret joint to the body and was meticulously crafted from the finest building materials by one of the USA’s finest luthiers.
Extremely beautiful master grade East-Indian rosewood back and sides with sitka spruce soundboard, mahogany wood neck, an ebony fretboard bound with master grade curly Koa wood, master grade curly Koa wood top and back binding and end graph, classic ebony bridge in string-tie fashion, Indian rosewood faceplate with classic paua abalone crown inlay on headstock, elegant top purfling for subtle appeal, and matching curly Koa wood rosette for aesthetic appeal. The uke is fitted with professional classical guitar slotted-headstock tuners with ebony button for precise tuning and finished in a gloss lacquer finish. Professional B-Band electronics installed for quick plug-n-play capacity.
The neck is fast, smooth, and very comfortable as you progress up towards the body. The set-up is also perfect and the uke is very easy to play and has exceptional projection, volume, and sustain. The tones are bright, crisp, and resonant all the way up the neck. The sweetness and sustain compliment the clarity and articulation and provide a nice fluidity to phrasing of note and chord progressions. Very rich, chocolately, and complex deep tones as well, classic Indian rosewood. There is also very good structural center-balance on the instrument as well. This uke would be great for both fingerpicking and strumming. Perfect for recording. Highly recommended.
