    Default Tiny Tenor Spalted Mango - my jaw dropped when I saw this

    This is such an incredible looking Tiny Tenor. I would have bought it on first sight IF I could play tenor neck comfortably. If I had another TT, I would still have bought this one and sold the other.

    Looks are secondary to other considerations, but this one is remarkable!

    Wow! That is indeed a beauty. Gorgeous. (How do you spell out a wolf whistle?)
    But just can't do it right now.

    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    I agree. My first ukulele was spalted mango. It is beautiful. By the way, does anyone know how to do a wolf whistle on the ukulele. I assume it is just two slides. Once I get to my instrument I might try to find the answer.

    Yes, spalted mango - and other woods - can be beautiful. Each one is different. Unfortunately, some don't look as good as others.

    And some look good but cost too much.

    Now that it’s sold, I can finally speak my mind. Doesn’t the pattern kind of reminds you of a human rib cage? I just can’t shake that image off.

    I was debating whether it looked like the x ray of someone's ribs or a lobster tail.

    That's a beauty, went quickly. Two years ago I had Bruce Wei make me a spalted mango and flame mango tenor, it cost $445 including shipping. Sounds great with the sound holes all the way around the bout and plays great.
