Maple and pistachio tenor banjo uke. The maple is from Camp Westwind, a special place on the Oregon coast that we are happy to support with the sale of this instrument. The pistachio is from California orchards and is a sustainable alternative to ebony and rosewood.
This is a special instrument, made from wood from Camp Westwind and will be raffled off at Tunes in the Dunes this year to benefit the camp. This is a truly special place and we are happy to support the efforts to keep it wild and wonderful. The spalted alder is from Westwind's forest and the oak washed up on shore amongst the debris from the Japanese tsunami a few years ago. Notice the ocean worm holes on the headstock, sawed and book matched to create a unique look.
A beautiful tenor scale banjo ukulele with a five piece maple and pistachio neck and a curly maple block rim. The maple is salvaged from a woodworkers estate sale, pre-cut into pieces that our son Henry likes to lay out on the shop floor as his "dance floor." From here on out known as "Henry's dance floor maple." The pistachio is sustainably harvested from California orchards.
