KoAloha Black Label Custom Tenor
Pictures AND Video shows the exact ukulele for sale here.
Black label is the flagship of KoAloha's custom work and it's a rare pleasure for us to show one. This unique and beautiful custom tenor ukulele features gorgeous koa framed off with white mother of pearl and a creative inlay design along the fretboard. It's a one of a kind instrument with a beautiful design and an amazing tone!
Black labels are braced and voiced differently from regular KoAloha's. The sound is warmer and more focused but still has the body and projection KoAloha is loved for.
A number of things set this black label apart from their production line. For one it's built by Paul and Griz. Some of the best custom builders in uke world. But other differences are the shape of the body, the shape of the bridge, the hand-cut inlays, the koa bindings and pearl purfling, the quality of the gloss finish as well as the satin finished neck, the quality of koa and the bracings are also made with hand selected koa. And ultimately the tonal quality is next level. If you can afford to get this uke we guarantee you will love it!
Other features on this ukulele include Macassar ebony bridge, fingerboard and headplate. The neck is slimmer than stock KoAloha's and it's finished in a smooth satin for ultimate feel. The body, of course, is a glassy gloss finish. It has hipshot tuners that are smooth and classy, and also the new KoAloha custom ABS hard case.
This is a rare and unique custom tenor by one of the most loved Hawaiian ukulele makers and it sounds amazing! We interviewed Paul Okami in our weekly podcast about this build and much more here.
