Breedlove ECO Luau Exotic S Tenor Ukulele

Crafted from Oregonian myrtlewood, the Breedlove ECO Luau S tenor ukulele sings with rich high-end tone, rounded out by mahogany-like warmth.
Sustainable, solid-topped Breedlove ECO Collection Lu'au S Series myrtlewood ukuleles feature a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of typical tone-robbing softwoods for back and sides. Sharing a Pacific Ocean coastline with Hawaiian koa, native Oregon myrtle has a similar bright ping, but borrows some of mahogany's depth and warmth for a unique, powerful ukulele presence. Tenor ukes, the favorite of hailed modern aces like Jake Shimabukuro, have a throaty sonority that appeals to guitar players and a longer 17" scale that facilitates translating hot licks from six strings to four. The natural finish on this full-shouldered tenor Lu'au, equipped with geared tuners and Aquila Super Nylgut strings, will appeal to traditionalists, too.
