This not your grandfather's ukulele. Built to be played and used, this stunning concert size ukulele body is all ebony with a matte finish that really make the instrument stand out in both looks and sound. The top back and sides have a basswood core for decreased mass for a rich warm tone. Mahogany neck with a Canadian black walnut fretboard and Canadian maple leaf inlays. Bracing was designed for the perfect balance of tone and strength. The icing on the top of this fine instrument is the Riversong neck technology that allows for instant neck angle adjustments for perfect action and intonation. Essentially this ukulele is a floating body around a neck thru design.
