John S. Kinnard Thin-line Tenor

California Sycamore with Western Red Cedar 

This is one of the most beautiful custom tenors that we have ever built and shows off the amazing craftsmanship that John puts into every instrument he builds.  It features some of the most beautiful California Claro Walnut that we have ever seen​ and why we wanted to showcase it in an all Walnut build. 

Ebony appointments blend so well with the Walnut and John uses his artistry to combine them into beautiful design touches in the rosette, floating neck inlay and fretboard.  It has our modified recessed Z-Stock that shows off the Walnut underneath the faceplate while the back of the headstock shows off a dark ebony backplate.  Understated elegance is what we shoot for in the design of our builds and we use the natural beauty of the woods to show that off.  This build exemplifies that build philosophy in spades. 

Warm, woody and resonant, this uke just drips of tone.
