Pair Of Tenor Ukuleles (Maple,Koa,Sapele,Paduk,Lacewood)

Photo for Ad 132389

I have for sale a pair of Tenor Ukuleles that were build out of reclaimed wood and built in the Revision Division shop. The Revision Division is a wood and metal fabrication shop at Bellingham's own....The RE Store. They focus primarily on furniture building by repurposing reclaimed building materials. You can check out their story and work here: https://re-store.org/explore/revision-division/

I have been building string instruments for the past 16 years under my own name. This project has been a little dream of mine.....to teach luthier work in the Revision Division shop to our lead designer, Matt Vaughn, and build two instruments out of reclaimed materials that come from The RE Store in Bellingham. (not to be mistaken for Habitat for Humanities Re Stores). We started from scratch building forms, fixtures, jigs, etc and worked through building these two ukes truly from scratch using all reclaimed materials except for the tuning machines and strings. The build were completed in three weeks and the results were amazing. These two ukes sound great.

About the instruments: They are both Tenor Ukuleles.
The first one is Sitka Spruce top, western big leaf maple back sides and neck, koa bindings head plate fingerboard bridge and sound hole rosette, ebony inlay for logo side dots and fingerboard position markers, and bison femur nut and bridge saddle.
The first second is Sitka Spruce top, sapele back and sides, lacewood neck, paduk bindings head plate fingerboard bridge and sound hole rosette, ebony inlay for logo side dots and fingerboard position markers, and bison femur nut and bridge saddle.

Each are being sold for $800 or $1500 for the pair. This includes domestic shipping. A donation to the mandolin cafe will be made upon completion of sale.

Custom wooden stands are also available for an additional $90 each. I will post photos of them tomorrow.

They come with really sturdy heavily padded gig bags. Payment can be made via credit card to The RE Store or through paypal.
