I like to call Myrtle "Oregon's Koa," because it looks as beautiful as Hawaiian Koa and sounds great too. I like to think that if the ukulele originated here they would have picked myrtle as the traditional ukulele wood! This fancy myrtle comes from near Pistol River, OR from woodfromthewest.com. The old growth Douglas Fir neck comes from floor boards from The Dalles, OR and the pistachio fretboard and trim is from California orchards. This one is a great example of why the myrtle tenor became our bread and butter at Mya-Moe: it's the perfect combination of sound and looks!
