What a beauty! This Mele Ukulele Custom Series solid mango wood concert #CM5 is absolutely stunning. Here in Hawaii, ukuleles have been made out of mango wood since the 1880’s, but not a whole lot of them. Mango wood is highly desirable in ukuleles, with an awesome look and unique sound. It combines the best features of the most desirable tonewoods — deep and resonant like mahogany, it also offers sweet, crystalline highs like koa, but with mid-range strength and clarity reminiscent of Sitka spruce. Now we understand why so many musicians have asked us to build mango ukuleles, and we are glad to make and carry them! This one of a kind model also includes a curly Koa rosette, an ebony fretboard and a glossy finish. Grab this one quick before it’s gone for good!
