    Default New Ono Koa Tenor

    This one is ready to ship so I grabbed a few photos before boxing it up. The koa is truly master grade from Notable Woods, with excellent color, figure and tonal properties. The bindings, board and bridge are Macassar ebony. The finish is glossy lacquer on the body and epoxy on the mahogany neck, hand rubbed to satin for playability. It's strung with the Oasis wound low G set, which seems to be a good match with the character of the instrument.

    Hiya, Bill! It's MOP. The lustre doesn't show up very well in the photos.

    That is one fine looking tenor ukulele. I'll bet it plays as good as it looks.
