"Lil' Turquoise" Mod. - SWUKEKoa Ser.#121519003
PARIZONA Koa Tenor Ukulele
Koa / Koa
"lil' Turquoise" is a tenor ukulele that was custom made for a client. The request was for a Koa ukulele with blue incorporated in some fashion. The ukulele was made with curly Hawaiian Koa back, sides and top. The rosette and other inlays were done with crushed turquoise. The binding was done in curly maple and the neck is honduran mahognay (again with curl). The ebony fretboard and bridge give nice contrast. The look is rounded out with gold frets and tuners. This ukulele has the vibrant, lively sound associated with Koa. Great tone and volume complete this stylish little ukulele. Buyer was extremely pleased with the final product and its a great addition to the PARIZONA Guitars line of Ukulele's.
