This is a beautiful new Hawaiian made custom tenor made by Charles Fukuba here on our island. This is the rare single hole I'iwi tenor AND also has the super rare side port. It sounds great, partly because the sinker redwood top which has been used on some of our favorite I'iwi tenors from the last few years. But this is also the first time we've had one with Australian blackwood sides and back. The back has a centerpiece of padauk, a unique and beautiful look in a fantastic custom Hawaiian tenor!
Corey gives us a sound sample. Pictures and video show the exact instrument now available here.
Like a little dreadnought, this I'iwi has wonderful depth, sustain, and a full spectrum of tones and overtones with clarity and power.
