Custom Turtle Ukulele

css-turtle-uke

Inspired by Kim Breedlove’s affinity for the ocean, this signature ukulele features a beautiful sea horse inlay and master-class wood combinations: a bearclaw Sitka top, and master-class myrtlewood back and sides. Notice the pearl side dots on the fretboard, AB top, koa peghead overlay and a koa with ebony overlay on the bridge.

Bearclaw has a shallow, cross-grain curl that seems to increase cross-grain stiffness – many luthiers feel that it enhances the tone and sustain of spruce. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice: Grown in the Northwest, it is a favorite for many styles of playing.
