    Default New Ono Baritone

    This 20" baritone was built for a UU member who specified a koa top for its traditional tone. We decided to have a little fun with the back and sides so some wild quilted maple was chosen for not only its figure but also for the color, which nicely complements the koa top. The neck is Alaskan yellow cedar with a koa stringer.

    We decided to start with Worth browns, which are at the mellow end of the scale. Right now, it's deep and full but still quite articulate. It's shipping with Worth clears and Southcoast HL-WB in the box. The owner is a very experienced player who can be counted on to experiment so I'll be very interested to see what he settles on.

    Another fantastic looking instrument, David. My maple nerve is all tingly! ;-)
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Maple always seems to have an inexplicable effect on you!

    Another gorgeous instrument David. I really want to hear how this one sounds.
    The maple curly back edge has a very cool rope binding-like effect, viewed from the side.
