BLEM - Premier Exotic Macawood Concert Ukulele
A “blem” instrument refers to an instrument that is completely functional and playable, but has one or more cosmetic flaws. This can range from a slight scratch or scratches, to a ding on the headstock, a possible mark on the binding, discoloration on the binding, or other visible flaws. The instruments in this section have blemishes and therefore are being offered at a discount. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact us within 10 days to return it for a refund. Cost of shipping applies.
Known also as Macacauba and Granadillo, Macawood has a growing reputation in the instrument world as a lively and spirited tonewood choice. Macawood hails from Central America, where it has long been called “the wood that sings,” and can be found growing today throughout Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. With tonal qualities similar to Rosewood, Macawood’s density provides a long sustain, overall responsiveness, and smooth bass overtones. Visually it is wild and fun, trading off chestnut and chocolate browns with an interlocking grain that all pops under our Premium Exotic high gloss finish.
