Check out Abe Lagrimas, Jr.'s demo on this model's spectacular tonewood:
Ohana is excited to announce the arrival of a very special Limited Edition, the CK-450SMP. Featuring solid Spalted Maple, generous abalone inlay, and a unique slotted headstock, this concert scale instrument is a celebration of some of the most luxurious raw materials available.
The process of creating these wonderful patterns does create a bit of an issue—raw material that retains enough strength and integrity for a solid build is incredibly rare. Only about 1 in 100 sets of Spalted Maple wood are stable enough to create our ck-450SMP. At Ohana, we hand-pick these sets, making each instrument a true labor of love.
"I’ve always been a sucker for a sweet abalone inlay, and I think it pairs nicely with the Spalted Maple. It is almost as though each one is a small scale Rorschach test! The maple lends a lovely resonance to the instrument’s tone, and I dig the slotted headstock on this model."
