John S. Kinnard All Redwood Tenor
Legacy Build #2

An all Redwood Ukulele is as rare as you can find.  While we have made a Redwood body concert in the past, the neck on it was made with Maple.  This build includes the neck in Redwood making it what we believe to be the first all Redwood ukulele ever built.  The question then is why. Why would you build an instrument out of all Redwood?  The short answer is John wanted to see what he could achieve both in aesthetics and sound with an all Redwood construction and let me tell you- we are impressed!

Extremely light, this tenor has wonderful tonality that is both warm and mellow but with plenty of volume, projection and note separation.  It features the following:

California Redwood back and sides
Redwood Top

Redwood Neck with Floating inlay in Padauk/Ebony
