Hawaiian-style Tenor

I use the term ‘Hawaiian Style’ for instruments shaped in the traditional hawaiian style using matched hardwood for the back, front and sides. For that traditional sound I use koa – however I have a limited supply which will not be replaced. After a long search I have found that makore and cherry are viable and excellent alternatives. Check out our sound archive for a comparison test. On cherry models the neck material is Scottish alder.

Scale length is 17.1” with a 19 fret fingerboard joining the body at the 14th fret. There is no rosette. Body depth is 65mm at the lower bout tapering to 55mm at the neck joint. A classic tie bridge is fitted as standard.

An all-rounder, the Hawaiian style tenor is suited to all styles of playing

Price: £1100 matt, £1250 gloss. Delivery extra.
