    Default NUD - Beau Hannam Tenor - Redwood and Koa - Camino Inlay

    This is a wonderful instrument. The build quality and design are at the highest level.

    I am impressed with the tone. Each string rings true. The intonation is spot on.

    Working with the builder, Beau Hannam was very interactive and cooperative. He brings a high level of artistic imagination to his work. He took my simple description of some possible ornamentation for the headstock and made it a scene that captures my experience on the Camino de Santiago.

    The pictures and video were taken by Beau and it is Beau playing the sound sample.

    Congrats, that is a truly beautiful instrument. I wish it was mine!
    What's the fretboard decoration made of? It's a bit hard to make out in the video, but I love how it ties the colour of the soundboard through to the headstock scene.

    The fretboard marks are the same amboyna burl as the path on the headstock. Beau's art is as strong as his building craft.

    Very nice to have it so personalized! Congrats on such a fine instrument!
