Lee at work on head plate
This tenor ukulele was a delight to design and build. I had the assistance ofmy neighbor and good friend Lee Doehring. Lee designed and made the spectacular back and head plate. The woods used to make the patterns were English Oak Burl, Walnut Burl, and Birdseye Maple. I used the back and head plate Lee made to build this unique instrument.
The sides are the rare and coveted Brazilian Rosewood. The top wood is Bearclaw Sitka Spruce. The side bindings are curly Koa wood. The fingerboard and bridge are Zircote. The fret markings are white, black and gold Mother-of-pearl. The tuners are the new GOTOH planetary tuners. The instrument comes with a Fremont case similar to the one in the photo below.
