❌SOLD❌ Ray’s Rootworks Shellback Baritone Ukulele, Cedar and Cherry, 2017


Instrument Categories: ,

From time to time, we get to see new and innovative designs that refer to much older ideas. This Shellback Baritone Ukulele from Rootworks is such an item. This fascinating instruments draws from the Fibonacci sequence, the shape of half a Nautilus shell, created using Cherry veneer with a Red Cedar top.

Several other woods are used as well – Mahogany for the neck, Katalox for the fingerboard, Maple and Walnut for the bridge, Ebony for the nut, and there’s a Carbon Fibre neck reinforcement. To top it all off, a K&K Big Island pickup is installed.

Ray’s Rootworks operates out of Peterborough, Ontario, and is run by Ray Vincent and Susan Halle. They make a number of different instruments including ukuleles, the 4- or 5-string Root and a lap harp, many using the half-shell outline. These are fascinating, innovative and very well made.

A Fusion brand padded gig bag is included.
