$3,499.00 MSRP $2,299.99
The curves and lines in the grain of this instrument create an entire story within the wood. A landscape made of one of a kind tones and classic genres that have found a home in this ukulele. Adirondack Spruce is a traditional top wood that is used in old-time, bluegrass music. This wood projects beautifully and is favored for its dynamic responsiveness. We also selected Ziricote for this ukulele for it’s beautiful tone and completely unique appearance. It is trimmed in Walnut binding and has a lovely Maple neck.
This instrument was made with purpose, it was designed in collaboration with the young budding folk and bluegrass star, EmiSunshine. Emi is an incredible vocalist with a style that harkens back to earlier eras of country music. Her breakout came at just 9 years old at a Tennessee flea market. Singing and playing mountain melodies, classic country, blues and folk – and writing and producing all of her own music. She is a powerful, energetic entertainer with over 14 Million YouTube views. She’s managed to do all this with a Kala ukulele as her instrument of choice.
We paired Emi with one of our talented luthiers, Olivia, who is incredibly gifted in both wood working and art. Olivia has a degree in Fine Arts from UCLA and a history of working on some of Kala’s most celebrated USA Elite instruments. She and Emi came up with a ukulele that would have a combination of Adirondack Spruce and Ziricote. The concept from the beginning was to make a natural and organic feeling ukulele.
Olivia designed an asymmetrical, one-of-a-kind vine rosette for around the sound-hole. The center rosette is Ziricote. Knowing that Emi’s trademark is the blackbird, Olivia incorporated it into the instrument by making an Obsidian Blackbird Inlay for the headstock.
The result is a beautiful, limited edition instrument that both sounds and looks like no other ukulele.
