A new ‘old-stock’ Custom William King Baritone Ukulele built in Austin, TX. Constructed of gorgeous mahogany wood on back and sides and Western cedar wood top with ebony fretboard and bridge. This piece boasts an ebony wood binding on front, back and gorgeous paua shell rosette. 14 fret joint to the body with 20 overall frets to the soundhole. Tru-wax finish with bone nut and saddle and a sound that is absolutely magnificent. Geared tuners with pearl white buttons for precise tuning.
This instrument was handcrafted in 2006 but gently tucked away in William’s shop until this past week. It is absolutely ‘new’ but you get the best of both worlds with this one since the wood has cured to perfection and the uke is ready to play. There is some light cloudiness in the finish to the back of the uke.
This beauty really sings and has excellent volume and incredible sustain. The low tones are nice and long and crisp and balanced on the high end as well. Now is your chance to have a phenomenal player instrument from one of USA’s best luthiers.
