The light brown body of the Pacific Walnut line is contrasted by the rich, dark brown patterns in the grain. The remarkable look created by this contrast gives these ukulele a striking boldness.
Walnut is a tonewood that gradually sees more use for the production of quality instruments. Mostly guitars and ukulele's are made with pieces of Walnut. It's not only used for the construction of the body but also for bridges and fretboards Walnut is a great alternative to some other increasingly rare tonewoods. The sound that Walnut offers falls somewhere in between that of Mahogany and Rosewood. It has the well rounded sound of Mahogany with the added bottom end of Rosewood. The lows and highs are less coulored then that of Mahogany and the mids are more pronounced. There are also some similarities between Walnut and Koa, both tonewoods have the same well balanced tone. Where Koa has more harmonics, Walnut has a cleaner, louder and stronger projecting sound.
OPEN PORE FINISH
Not only does the open pore finish enhance the resonance of the woods but it also reduces the weight of the instrument for improved playability. This model’s natural and brown finishes feature gloss top for high-end vintage look and feel.
