#439- Spruce and Spalted Myrtle Scout Ukulele

Another sweet, democratic and fun Scout ukulele. The top is choice old growth spruce and the back and sides are amazing spalted Myrtle from the Oregon coast. For the fretboard, I am trying persimmon, which I got from another builder. Also called white ebony, persimmon is a great domestic hardwood suitable for luthiery. The neck is old growth Douglas fir, salvaged from some stair treads.
