    Default NUD: Sailor Brand Tenor Uke

    Got this wonderful Sailor Brand tenor uke from Uke Republic. Mike was fantastic to deal with!

    Sounds wonderful. Solid Spruce top, solid poplar body with a Kawazinga veneer. I put Aquila Lavas on it with a high G and wound C.

    Take a look:

    Nice! I like their use of veneers. Makes the fancy woods go farther and there's nothing wrong with the acoustics of poplar. Looking forward to a playing sample.

    Quite the nice looking Ukulele. Congratulations mineymole. The Kawazinga is beautiful.
    I agree with Jim, they make great use of veneers.
    Enjoy,
    Steve.
