I just completed three new ukuleles for the month-long show at the Isaacs Center. All three tenor ukuleles are made from exceptional Koa that I purchased from Marcus Castaing. One has a redwood top and the other two are all Koa. One has an inlay of the Hokulea on the headstock and one has abalone around the face of the instrument as well as around the headstock. Check them out if you are in Waimea. The show runs through February 22nd.
Playing at my mother-in-law, Helen Lindgren’s, 90th birthday last week was a blast. My son, Tristan, played a jumbo acoustic guitar I had made and I played a koa ukulele I built for my grandson, Brady. It’s rewarding making instruments but even more so playing them, especially with your son who is an extremely talented musician.
