Twisted Wood Aurora Soprano Ukulele AR-800S Laminate Koa

Twisted Wood Aurora Soprano Ukulele AR-800S Laminate Koa

Here we have a Twisted Wood Aurora Soprano ukulele, with Laminate Koa for the top, back and sides. The neck is Mahogany with Walnut used for the fingerboard and bridge, and Mahogany is also used for the binding and rosette. This is a straightforward, intermediate level Soprano Ukulele, well built and the wood choices provide a full, rich tone with the Walnut on the bridge and fingerboard adding warmth and a hint of chime.

Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele KO-1000C

Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele KO-1000C

Here we have a Twisted Wood Koa Concert Ukulele. Built using solid Hawaiian Koa for the top, back and sides, the neck is Mahogany with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge. In a departure from traditional Ukulele construction, a pin-style bridge as found on steel string guitars is used. This type of bridge is much easier to restring than the tie-block type found on traditional Ukes, and on Classical and Flamenco nylon string guitars.

Thomas Malapanis Classical Guitar, 2004

Thomas Malapanis Classical Guitar, 2004

Here we are looking at the Thomas Malapanis Classical numbered 26, and dated to 2004.  The top is Red Cedar,  while the sides, back, headplate and bridge are Cocobolo.  The sides are lined with a Cypress or Sycamore facing, not the same as ‘laminate’ woods,  a technique pioneered by Jose Ramirez III to help increase clarity, and still used on some higher end Ramirez models.

❌SOLD❌ Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar, 2005

❌SOLD❌  Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar,  2005

Here we have a Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra guitar,  built in Madrid during 2005.  The key difference between Flamenco Negra and Classical guitars, aside from the use of Rosewood instead of Cypress for the back and sides –  is largely geometry.  The neck set on a Flamenco guitar is a bit higher, allowing for low action and the attendant rattle that’s part of the Flamenco sound.  Flamenco Negra guitars are becoming more common and often found in the ‘World Music’ context.
