#316- Master Grade Myrtle, Pistachio and Fir Alto Ukulele

When you have a set of myrtle like this, it seems best to just get out of the way and let it shine. I paired it with simple two-color pistachio binding and an understated pistachio fretboard and headplate. I didn’t want to distract from the mastergrade myrtle which was given to me from Char from Mya-Moe before she retired. It has an interesting rising match of the four top and back plates highlighting a couple of small knots as they emerge from the quilted figure. It’s voice is rich and meaningful but not too loud/harsh. It’s got something important to say but will not yell to be heard. If you miss out on it’s voice then you are talking too loud. Be quiet and notice this elegant/functional object, you won’t regret stopping to listen.
