Preowned. Custom ukuleles for sale by Ko’olau Ukulele Company. Absolutely wonderful Custom Ko`olau Tenor Ukulele Model CS. Handcrafted here on the island of Oahu by Noah Bonk, Ko’olau ukuleles are regarded as one of Hawaii’s most sought after custom instruments.
The body of this Custom Ko’olau CS Tenor Ukulele is handcrafted entirely of Hawaii-grown Cuban Mahogany wood on the face, back, and sides. Musician’s grade ebony wood fretboard and bridge with a Brazilian Rosewood headstock veneer. Matching Brazilian Rosewood top and back binding. The fingerboard and bridge are radiuses adding for comfort on the wrist angle up and down the neck. Bound ebony wood fretboard and offset position markers inlaid on positions 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 for quick reference when playing. The instrument boasts a paua shell rosette and paua shell top purfling, black-white purfling lines on the soundboard and rosette, and a classic slotted headstock with professional level – geared tuners for precise tuning. A clear pick guard has been installed on the upper bout of the ‘A’ string side of the instrument, wear on the finish of the side of the fingerboard can be seen on both sides of the neck, an impact below the bridge on the ‘G’ string side of the instrument, and other honest play wear such as scratches and dings exist throughout the instrument – but there is no denying the sound. This instrument was a gigging instrument and also includes a strap button on the neck and butt of the instrument along with a Five-O pick up for quick plug and play. High gloss finish on the body with a satin finish on the neck for a smooth-to-the touch feel.
The tone of this instrument is warm and mellow as would be expected with an all mahogany wood instrument. Fantastic projection and sustain with a nice mid-range and lower end. This instrument has been played and enjoyed by a local musician in Hawaii. #230024.
