The neck is carved from toon wood for added stability and the soundboard has an elegant b-r-b purfling for classic appeal. Gorgeous abalone ‘paua’ shell rosette. Bone nut and saddle and a high gloss finish for added durability and mirror-like sheen. The instrument also boasts a side sound port for monitor-like effect. Meticulously hand-cut recon stone and paua shell inlay on headstock, fretboard, and into the soundhold emulating the historical lava flow of Kilauea Volcano down to the seashore of Kalapana Beach that is absolutely stunning!
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.
