PCH Ukulele – Curly Oregon Myrtle and Denim Spruce Tenor
This ukulele has a Denim Sitka spruce top and curly Oregon Myrtle back and sides.
The spruce top is from a log used to float a houseboat on a remote Alaskan Lake for several decades. The grayish tan color is a result of minerals from the water and iron nails and straps used to fasten the logs seeping into the wood over time. The result is a top that has the character of spruce with the added ability to be pushed hard without losing its tone.
I love the curl of this myrtle. There is actually a tan stripe and a grey stripe that makes the wood look a little like snakeskin. The accents (back of headstock, end graft and healcap) are a dark Koa. The neck is slightly curly Big Leaf Maple with a carbon fiber reinforcement rod. The rosette is a mosaic of various hardwood including purple and yellow heart pieces. The binding, fretboard and bridge are East Indian Rosewood. The headstock is a double book matched curly myrtle that forms a sunburst pattern.I love the medullary rays on the spruce. It gives the top sort of a quilted feel.
Strings are a Pepe Romero wound low G string with custom high carbon fluorocarbon strings for the C, E, A.
