#357- Myrtle Alto Ukulele

Magda asked for an alto ukulele similar to another I made that referenced Wabi-Sabi as an aesthetic and cultural influence. I happily set aside a set of this asymmetrical Myrtle for her, happy to continue to explore the idea. Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese idea that celebrates natural imperfection, muted earth tones, authentic textures and asymmetrical designs. It is an interesting exercise to explore this while making sure that tone and playability are un-affected. The Myrtle for this uke came from Char at Mya-Moe before she retired. The pistachio is from California Orchards and the Fir is from salvaged floor boards.
