Ko'olau Model 100SP Tenor Tropical Ash and Spruce

Here is a Ko'olau Tenor Model 100SP (formerly 200 series). The back and sides are made out of Tropical Ash, and the top is Sitka Spruce. The fingerboard, bridge, and faceplate are in ebony. The neck is mahogany, and the logo inlay on the faceplate is in M.O.P.. This ukulele is very bright and loud, crisp and clear tone with very nice playability. The SP is a rare model, and it is also unusual to find one with such a nice combination of hardwood and tonewood. The tuners and Gotoh, and it comes with the Ko'olau hard shell case. This instrument was just acquired this afternoon, and I have shared it with you first. Mahalo.
