From Berkeley builder Peter Hurney, this is possibly his finest Uke. Beautiful Art Deco styling, including an MOP & Ivory inlaid 20's Flapper in the fingerboard, many other subtle and not so subtle but super tasty design elements. The top is Western Red Cedar, back and sides are Quilted Mahogany, and the fingerboard is ebony.
Peter says, "On this overly elegant ukulele I ?went all out? combining a mixture of art - deco cues highlighted with a fretboard inlay of a Phoenician Flapper Girl.
The backside of the peghead is capped in a dark koa, dark koa stripes run down the neck and a dark koa stripe inlaid around the perimeter of the instrument which is quilted Honduran Mahogany.
The soundboard is Western Red Cedar giving the ukulele a warm tone. The Flapper Girl inlay is composed of Gold Mother of Pearl, Ivory (from old piano keys), Koa, a spot of Turquoise and the fingerboard is ebony.
I think that this perhaps is the most elegant instrument I have made yet. A lot of time went into the design and execution of this special ukulele. And as is to be expected of a Pohaku ukulele, it plays even better than it looks. Not a detail was missed!"
