View Full Version : FS: Compass Rose Walnut tenor

12-20-2008, 08:47 AM
I have a Compass Rose Walnut tenor for sale.

It has an all walnut body, mohagany neck, some sort of rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and bone nut and saddle. It has geared tuners, a shoulder strap pin mounted on the heel of the neck, and a soundboard mounted passive pickup (unknown brand) with a tail block mounted jack that doubles as shoulder strap pin. The pickup was supposedly mounted by Rick Turner (founder of Turner Renaissance Guitars) himself for his friend Doug (it's signed by Rick Turner with "For Doug" written on the soundhole label).

It's currently strung with a set of D'Addario J71's and it has a nice and clear sound that's really crisp sounding to my ears. More so than most other non-custom tenor ukuleles I have, which inclues a Sonny D, a Kanile'a super tenor, and a Kelii tenor. I'd rate it with most of the Hawaiian made tenor ukuleles I've played in terms of sound. Here's a sound demo (http://www.box.net/shared/p8xmp6nev1)of this ukulele.

It's a tenor scaled ukulele with a 1-5/16" nut width, which is the narrowest nut width I have encountered in a ukulele so far. Had it been 1.5" nut width, I'd probably keep it. But I need to downsize my collection so I will have to part with this one.

It is in good shape with the only flaws being a small chip at the headstock and a ding at the A-string side of the upper bout edge.

I'm asking for $600 for this ukulele, case and shipping included.

Here are some pictures of this uke:
