Preowned. Circa 2010. Custom Moore Bettah “Hawaiian Palm Trees” Tenor Ukulele. Beautiful Custom Moore Bettah 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 and extremely rare Moore Bettah tenor ukulele was crafted from the finest materials. Gorgeous master grade Hawaiian curly Koa wood face, back, and sides. Gabon Ebony wood fretboard and bridge and a matching Gabon Ebony wood top and back binding. The neck was hand-carved from Mahogany wood and is carbon fiber reinforced for added stability. Side sound port for monitor-like experience by which the sound fires forward toward the audience but also upward toward the player, allowing for the player to hear clearly the subtle nuances of each note. The fretboard and back of the body boasts an elegant black-white purfling line, beautifully contrasting the natural golden color of this set of master grade Hawaiian curly Koa wood. Gabon ebony wood headstock veneer with artistic headstock “Hawaiian Palm Trees” inlay handcrafted of Hawaiian Koa wood, mother-of-pearl, and abalone shell for aesthetic appeal. 14 fret joint to the body for added reach high up on the neck and 17 overall frets to the sound hole. Professional Gotoh open-geared tuners for precise tuning, a MiSi pickup for quick plug and play, and a beautiful high gloss nitrocellulose finish add to the functional and beautiful aesthetic of this custom Moore Bettah ukulele.
A big and bold sound with great clarity, projection, and excellent sustain as well. Classic Hawaiian Koa wood bark with a nice warm tone as well. This instrument is very well balanced tonally all the way up the neck and spot on intonation as well. Highly recommended player piece. A rare find, this is as good as it gets for recording artists, weekend giggers, and the uke-lover at heart! ID#220031
