All Solid Acacia Tenor Ukulele w/ Cutaway & Pickup
This beautiful, all-solid striped acacia will turn heads and please ears. Decorative features include a slotted headstock with vintage styled gear tuners, custom abalone fret marker inlays, maple binding, and vintage-style herringbone purfling. Acacia is also called Mimosa or Shower Tree; these tropical trees are cousins of the Hawaiian Koa Tree. They have gorgeous striped patterns of light and dark brown and have a deep colorful tone that matches their beauty.
For the last decade, the regular Kala Acacia tenor has been one of our best selling models. For 2018 they changed the model name from ASAC-T to SA-T. The binding is now maple wood and the fretboard and bridge are walnut. They lightened the weight of this instrument and increased the resonance and the new SA-T is certainly one of the best options for a high quality, modestly priced solid wood tenor. This newest model just released come with a cutaway and pickup with onboard EQ and tuner.
Kalei and Tobias give us a raw sound sample of this model.
"The Solid Acacia Tenor is now available with a cutaway and a Fishman® Kula preamp. The Solid Acacia line bears a beautiful, figured grain pattern that is similar to its close relative Koa. The tone of Acacia is also similar to its cousin Koa, providing clarity, warmth, and a midrange focus. We’ve added Maple binding, herringbone rosette, and a venetian cutaway for decorative effect, all wrapped up in a satin finish."
What is our "setup"? We don't make these ukuleles. We make these ukuleles better! This includes Saddle and Nut heights, Fret work (usually planing or "dressing"), intonation checks, and a thorough inspection for cosmetic flaw. This is crucial for this middle price range where you can really get close to a high end tenor feel from our extra work. And always, we are dedicated to giving you honest and expert service and advice!
Kala really nailed it with this model. Good looks, balanced tones, and after our setup this tenor plays as good as it comes! Don't hesitate because these won't be in stock for long!
We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it.
