Circa 1994. Preowned. Custom ukuleles by Pegasus Ukuleles. Beautiful Pegasus 6-String Tenor Ukulele handcrafted in the traditional shape by luthier Bob Gleason of Kurtistown, HI. Bob 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.
Built in the traditional shape rather than the classic shape, the traditional shape has a less rounded lower bout. The top is handcarved from a beautiful set of aged Hawaiian Koa wood with a matching set of Hawaiian curly Koa wood back and sides. Gorgeous Pheasantwood or ‘Kolohala’ top and back binding show an elegant contrast with the Hawaiian Koa wood and tie in the beautifully with the overall theme of the instrument. The neck has been carved from Honduras mahogany for added structural integrity and sustain. The fretboard has been slightly radiused for ease of play on the wrist angle of the player and is crafted of musicians-grade Gabon Ebony wood as well as the bridge. Abalone shell rosette and matching abalone shell top purfling on the soundboard. Elegant Pegasus inlay on headstock of mother-of-pearl. Classic friction style tuners and high gloss finish. Minor play wear but overall in wonderful condition.
All of Bob’s ukuleles are meticulously crafted from the finest materials and with stunning attention to detail. They are amongst the most sought after ukuleles and yet some of the most difficult to acquire. A true work of art aesthetically with some of the cleanest luthiery techniques employed by the 21st century ukulele luthier. Bob’s instruments have perfectly set intonation, are very cleanly built, and offer precise tones all the way up the neck. Nice crisp and clean notes all the way up the neck with a full and aged Hawaiian Koa wood sound. Deep lows with a nice balanced mid-rage and crispy high notes as well.
Pegasus Ukuleles are handcrafted with all the warmth of true ‘Aloha’. Nothing but the best in high end custom ukuleles from Bob Gleason!!!
