Ko'olau Tenor 100 Pineapple Slothead

Here is a Ko'olau Tenor 100 Pineapple Slothead. The first of its kind from the nice folks at Ko'olau Ukulele in Wahiawa. This instrument has an all curly Hawaiian Koa body, and a mahogany neck. The bridge and fingerboard are in ebony. The faceplate is in koa, and the headstock itself is slotted. Slotted headstocks are popular, as they add mass to the neck, and increase resonance and sustain. Abalone rosette, and M.O.P. (mother of pearl) position markers and headstock logo. Koa heelcap. Waverly tuners. This ukulele has a very round and full tone, as you may expect. Although not the first Tenor Pineapple that I have come across, it is very rare. As always, this Ko'olau is a professional grade instrument. The action and intonation are very good. This ukulele has shipped to one of our Japan dealers. We have also received a T-1 Tenor Pineapple with non-slotted headstock. Mahalo.
