    Default NUD - Beau Hannam Redwood Koa Tenor with Koi and Baby inlay

    Actually I had received this beauty about a week ago, no time to really post it up yet. So this is it!

    A fantastic heirloom with perfect aesthetic and sonic appeal to me. My Beau Hannam tenor has a redwood top and figured koa back and sides. It has been in the works for sometime and I had been looking forward to it.

    This particular ukulele is very special to me as Beau has placed his very best (as always) in it. It was ordered some years, days before we found out my wife is carrying my third baby. Combing my interests in fish-keeping (koi) and my hinted theme on family (baby), Beau conceptualized the amazing headstock inlays which shows a koi cradling a baby. Its amazing!!!!

    Along the waiting and building, Beau has proved to be more than a luthier / businessman. My family met with a terrible car accident with a truck smashing up my sedan rear, totaling it. Beau gets to know through FB and offered a full refund of deposits without me asking.

    Back to the uke, it has prefect playability, aesthetic is prefect and it has a loud, warm mellow sound to the redwood top. I am in love! The LR Baggs 5.0 performs awesomely on this uke too.

    If I remember correctly, you can only upload 5 pictures for each posting. You would have to make another posting (not thread) to upload up to 5 more pictures.

    What a beautiful instrument! I'd love to own a Hannam guitar or uke one day, but they're such works of art I'd be too scared to play it.

    Congratulations. Really beautiful uke and great inlay on the headstock. And as another BH uke owner, also with a redwood top, I dont have to ask you how it sounds, I already know your uke sounds amazing. Beau makes some of the best ukes around.
