Augustino LoPrinzi - Tenor Quilted Maple - Nova Model!
Mr. Loprinzi, a custom builder located in Florida, is one of the world's best luthiers, and we have one of his finest and most original creations!
LoPrinzi is known in the high end guitar market for his excellent quality and tone. After being commissioned by Herb Ohta Jr, Augustino built his first ukulele. Herb loved it and over the past few years has become enamored with the challenge of getting lavish tone on an smaller instrument. We waited almost a year for this phenomenal model in a quilted maple and we love the sound! It looks very unique with the two ports cut outs like he magically scooped them out with a spoon. What this produces is a very clean projection without muddiness. Opening more ports gives more clarity and spaciousness. This is full, warm tone and extremely balanced. The Nova, which means new, is exactly that. This is not just a great instrument, but a creative original from a true luthier.
We are Including the Deluxe Oahu Wooden Hard case!
