Graziano Tenor Plumeria Custom in Maple and Spruce

Here is a very special Tenor from Tony Graziano in Santa Cruz, California. Mr Graziano has been building custom ukuleles for over 20 years, and his eye for detail is evident in his work. This ukulele has flame maple back and sides with a tightly lined Sitka spruce top. Ivoroid binding on the top, back, fingerboard, and headstock. Ebony bridge, fingerboard, headstock, and heelcap. Full Abalone inlay on the top, back, bottom, rosette, faceplate, and back-ceter strip. M.O.P. Plumeria motif position markers at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 12th, and 15th frets, as well as on the headstock including logo inlay. Solid curly maple neck. Peghead vintage style geared tuners. High gloss finish, and Aquila strings. This is one of the finer Graziano ukuleles that I have come across. I was graciously allowed to photograph it by a customer of Puapua's. Mahalo!
