Pigeon Tree Custom Adirondack Spruce Macassar Ebony Tenor

Pigeon Tree Custom Adirondack Spruce Macassar Ebony Tenor

Availability: Out of stock



This beautiful tenor was made by a luthier in San Antonio, Chade Nelson. It has an Adirondack spruce top and Macassar Ebony sides and back (a set Chuck Moore gave to him). AND, it has a big gorgeous sound we think you'll love. This is a clip from our latest podcast. 

Adirondack spruce is known as an ultimate tone wood with the highest stiffness of all top woods across and along the grain. Also excelling power and clarity is Macassar Ebony and together this uke is a real powerhouse. 

 Chade had built some classical guitars before falling in love with the ukulele a few years ago. You can see that in this tenor with its 12 fret to body design, Spanish heel neck joint, and was built with an emphasis on power and resonance. But unlike his previous ukes this one has a gloss lacquer finish. Kalei goes over some of the the details and samples it for us.

One of the features pointed out in the video is this rosette. Chade cut out a bunch of circles of different dyed woods and inlayed them on top of each other like a collage. It's a really unique idea and makes for a beautiful natural adornment like nothing we have seen.
