Phil Henderson Custom-Made Blond & Chocolate Myrtle Tenor Ukulele
This ukulele has a very curly Oregon Myrtle (aka California Bay Laurel) top with chocolate Myrtle back and sides I really like the color nuances on the back and the "shark fins" give even more interest. The accents (back of headstock, end graft and healcap) are Coolibah Burl.
The neck is curly Big Leaf Maple with a carbon reinforcement rod. The rosette, binding, fretboard and bridge are East Indian rosewood. I really like the purplish color of this rosewood with the tone of most of the myrtle I get in. The headstock is the same curly myrtle as the top. The tuners are black Gotoh Interplanetary tuners. Strings are a Pepe Romero wound low G string with custom high carbon fluorocarbon strings for the C, E, A.
I really like the sound of this uke. It has a warm tone like koa but has a little more volume and a little more depth to the sound. - P. Henderson, Luthier
