This is a model unique to SUS. All solid acacia tenor ukulele with an active shadow pickup and cutaway makes for one of the sexiest looking, best sounding and versatile tenor ukuleles available today.
Acacia is similar in character to Koa, so on the brighter side of the spectrum. The sound is very clear, with plenty of volume, and lovely sustain, typical of all solid wood instruments: cheaper laminates can sound muddy by comparison. The tone, volume and sustain is undoubtedly helped by the ebony nut and saddle, which as a very hard wood allows for greater vibrations which go on for longer.
With Aquila strings pepping the sound up even further, you have a well made, great looking, great feeling Tenor ukulele which can turn its hand to any style of playing.

Owing to wood being a natural material, each ukulele will vary a little in appearance. Acacia has light and dark elements which can vary in proportion, and can form wavy or straight grain lines. The uke shown is a good representation of average!.
