Custom Moore Bettah Tenor Ukulele


Custom Moore Bettah Ukulele – ‘Rope’ marquetry. Beautiful custom tenor 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 tenor ukulele is crafted from gorgeous native grown Hawaiian Koa wood top, back, and sides, ebony fretboard, cocobolo wood bridge, top and back maple wood binding, end graph, heel cap, bound fretboard and bound headstock. The neck is carved from Hawaiian Koa wood. The top and sides have an elegant black-white wood purfling for classic appeal and the soundboard and headstock is also purfed with a gorgeous rope marquety. There is also a matching rope marquetry double rosette around the soundhole.

Stunning maple wood position markers on 5, 7, 10, and 12. Gotoh close-geared tuners for precise tuning. Bone nut and saddle. Lacquer high gloss finish. This instrument was donated to local musicians Keoki Kahumoku and Herb Ohta Jr. for a music camp in Pahala, HI. The instrument is used but has been completely overhauled by Chuck Moore, including redressing the frets, resanding, and buffing to a glassy finish. There are no cracks, no repairs, and no needed repairs. The uke is in amazing condition.

Rich and complex tones with excellent sustain, clarity, and projection. This one has really opened up. 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!
