JI031 – Mahogany and Turquoise Tenor Uke
For JI031 I selected a really beautiful 1 piece genuine mahogany body, but when I milled the body I found a worm hole that ran the length of the body, through the waist bout up into the cutaway. After pondering on how to address it, I decided that I would make it a detail instead of trying to hide it. I work in a creative coworking space with 2 jewelers, so I asked if I could borrow some turquoise to inlay into the holes. After crushing and inlaying the turquoise the moment of truth came when I sanded the inlay flush with the body. I was stoked. The turquoise paired perfectly with the mahogany body and gave this uke lots of personality.
To go with the mahogany body I chose a nice maple neck, macassar ebony fret board, and a black walnut headstock overlay. It has two custom Warp Core “Joyner Ukulele Soapbar” Pickups running through a 3 way selector switch with volume and tone controls all routed out the integrated strap button jack. The mahogany body keeps this uke light weight, but it is a tone monster. Crank both knobs all the way and switch on the bridge pickup for screaming leads, or roll the volume and tone knob back in the neck position for sweet strumming.
JI031 is a go anywhere do anything electric uke, ready for your next gig or a recording session.
