Mele ***Limited Edition*** Curly Koa Tenor with Vintage Rope Rosette & Binding (Call to Inquire)


This beautiful and unique instrument  is built with the dimensions and bracing pattern of a Martin koa 14-fret tenor, like all Mele tenors, but we’ve added rope-style hand-inlaid purfling, which gives it the look and vibe of the classic Dias and Nunes ukes of Old Hawaii! Solid Big Island Koa, ebony bridge, nut & fingerboard and a glossy finish .

SKU: mele-koa-tenor-4-with-rope-inlay-241 Categories: ,


Here’s a beautiful 4-string koa tenor which rivals our high-end custom models in sound and features at a very reasonable price.
The top is gorgeous curly koa with a glossy nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a very attractive hand-inlaid soundhole border.
The very painstakingly hand-inlaid rope binding around the top and back add greatly to the value while not detracting at all from the amazing tone quality.
The fingerboard is natural-grained Asian ebony, adding to the striking and unique appearance, with ivoroid dot markers, and the tuners are Mele’s custom-made proprietary 18-to 1 nickel plated geared machines, guaranteeing stable, precision tuning.
This is an instrument you can be proud to play for any occasion or to give as a gift to anyone. One-of-a kind, so get it now!
