Ohana Solid Spalted Maple Ukulele CK-450SMP Concert

$899.00

The CK-450SMP is an all-solid concert ukulele featuring rare solid Spalted Maple, making this one for the collection!

 

 

Description

The Ohana CK-450SMP features unique and rare all-solid Spalted Maple with Abalone binding in a glossy finish. Making this a ukulele that plays good, feels good, and looks good.

Spalted Maple is prized for the unique graining patterns in the wood. These patterns are created by fungi eating away the wood. Depending on the species of fungi that is present, the figuring can range from white to near black.

The process of spalting does create a bit of an issue— raw material that retains enough strength and integrity for a solid build is incredibly rare. Which is why at Ohana we hand pick the sets that are stable enough to create our CK-450SMP.

Due to the availability and rarity of all-solid spalted Maple, small quantities of the CK-450SMP are made a year.
