    Default NUD Beau Hannam Tenor Grafted Walnut Carpathian spruce

    I'm posting this on behalf of Len (who asked me to do it for him).

    #88, 2020 Tenor
    Sound Sample
    Back/sides- Grafted Walnut (English/Black)
    Top- Carpathian spruce
    Neck- Figured maple
    Everything else- Brazilian rosewood.
    Headstock Inlay- Recon stone + MOP, all engraved.
    Tuners- Rodgers w black MOP buttons.

    Note- English walnuts are commonly grown in western states, where they are typically grafted onto the roots of the native California black walnut (Juglans hindsii), which is hardy in USDA zones 7 through 9. This practice imbues disease resistance to the trees and makes them better-adapted to native soils.

    Beautiful!

    That cutaway on the fretboard looks like the ones often seen on open back banjos. Is that to facilitate clawhammer playing?

    I do it cuz it looks cool- but it is also handy for the uke strum as your finger doesn't hit the fingerboard edge (as much)
