Live Performance with Paul Iinuma
(C.2018). New. Beautiful and meticulously made Custom Graziano Concert Ukulele handcrafted in Santa Cruz, CA by legendary luthier Tony Graziano . Tony has been building musical instruments since 1969 and ukuleles, specifically, since 1978. He has since transitioned away from guitars to primarily focus on his passion for handcrafted ukuleles since 1995 almost exclusively. His instruments are world renowned and his instruments are loved by musicians and recreational ukulele players throughout the world, but especially those here in the USA and Japan.
This gorgeous custom Graziano concert ukulele was handcrafted of a master grade set of coveted Brazilian Rosewood back and sides with a musician's grade sinker redwood soundboard. Mahogany wood neck, ebony fretboard and bridge, abalone shell rosette with matching abalone shell top purfling and black-white-black accent lines for aesthetic appeal are a few of the detail-oriented characteristics on this beautiful and functional piece of art. Matching abalone shell position markers on positions 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, and 15 for quick reference. Ivoroid top and back celluloid binding. Professional Gotoh geared tuners for smooth and precise tuning. High gloss lacquer finish.
A rich and chocolatey tone with wonderful clarity, great projection, and that classic Brazilian Rosewood low end that everyone loves. A great playing ukulele with a bold personality yet that traditional alto sound. A highly recommended ukulele meticulously handcrafted by one of the world's most highly regarded ukulele luthiers, Tony Graziano.
