Custom Moore Bettah Ukulele – ‘Manta Ray’ inlay. Beautiful custom concert ukulele handcrafted by master luthier Chuck Moore of the Big Island, HI. Chuck handcrafts some of not only the most aesthetically pleasing ukuleles available on the market but also professional recording level instruments for both the professional musician and recreational player.
This wonderful concert ukulele is crafted from gorgeous master grade Hawaiian Koa wood top, back, and sides, macassar ebony fretboard, bridge, top and back binding, end graph, heel cap and headstock veneer. The neck is carved from Spanish Cedar wood for added stability and stained with a darker hue of reddish brown to compliment the gorgeous Koa wood body of the instrument. The top, back and fretboard have elegant black-white purfling for classic appeal and the soundboard is purfed with abalone shell. There is also a matching abalone inlay around the headstock and a shell rosette around the soundhole.
Gorgeous `Manta Ray` inlay of mother-of-pearl and abalone shell on headstock. Paua shell fretboard position markers on 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15. Planetary 4:1 geared tuners for elegant, smooth, and precise tuning. Ebony wood nut and bone saddle. Mohawk lacquer high gloss finish.
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. And this is as good as it gets!
