    Default Nud: Kimo bear-claw spruce/koa tenor

    Beautiful new tenor from one on the nicest guys in the business!
    "Super Tenor", wider lower bout and deeper body, great warm and loud sound, X-bracing and sound-port.

    I Love the contrasting colors of the wood. Enjoyed your playing too. I've been trying to learn Let IT Be Me.
    Congrats!
