Circa 2011 Custom Moore Bettah Ukulele. Preowned. 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 and went virtually unplayed – gorgeous Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides with a spruce top. Macassar ebony wood fretboard and bridge with a bloodwood top and back binding, bound fingerboard, and bound headstock. Subtle b-w-b accent lines on the soundboard, fingerboard, headstock, and back of the instrument. The neck is hand-carved from Honduran mahogany wood and is carbon fiber reinforced for added stability. Gorgeous abalone ‘paua’ shell inlay on the rosette, and mother-of-pearl inlay on the headstock for a classic appeal with a musicians grade high gloss finish. Slotted headstock model with an elegant venetian cutaway.
The instrument boasts an upper bout porting system with a side sound port for a ‘monitor-like’ effect and a cutaway for easy of play in higher positions on the neck. A world-class instrument with a rich and complex tonal range, 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 for recording artists, weekend giggers, and the uke-lover at heart! #220050
