View Full Version : NUD: Sapwood

Got this used Ohana TK-50G in recently, all solid, rosewood B&S, cedar top. I'm usually not big on the sapwood look, but the rest of this uke looked so good, with a great price, I decided to try it. I don't recall ever seeing such a wide sapwood stripe on the back of a uke. It's growing on me! It really sounds good, much different than a mahogany tenor; just a clear, rich sound, with great volume. My first try with a cedar topped tenor. It came with Aquilas, now has Worth CT, reentrant, with UPTs added. Any sapwood fans here?

I have the concert version of this uke, lovely sound. I too use Worth but with low G. Mine is doesn't have the sapwood, just solid back. I like the look though. Ohana does a nice job on their ukes. Got mine from Mim.
