This Custom Ana`ole SA-2 Soprano Ukulele comes complete with curly Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides with Englemann spruce top. In addition, this beauty boasts a simple abalone shell rosette around the soundhole and professional Grover open-geared machine tuners for precision tuning less all the weight of a traditional closed-geared tuner. Rosewood fretboard and bridge and Honduran mahogany neck for added stability. Single black celluloid top binding and gloss nitrocelluloise finish. Excellent tonal qualities. Intonation is dead on and perfect balance, crisp highs and deep lows. Excellent sustain on each chord.
Ana`ole Ukuleles typically sell for $1350-$3250 depending on the model. This is the newest addition to the family, the SA-2, handcrafted with the ‘player’ in mind and with simple elegance and all the tonal qualities one would want from an Ana`ole at a fraction of the price.
Absolutely gorgeous! Gareth is one of the custom instrument builders who apprenticed under G-String Ukulele Co. for a number of years, working on many of the semi-custom and full custom instruments at the time. He now handcrafts his own instruments under the label of Ana`ole Ukuleles for your enjoyment.
A rare find for the true uke enthusiast. Best of luck and thank you for looking!
