This tenor ukulele is larger than my standard tenor in every dimension except the neck width. The body is 1″ wider and 1/4″ deeper than standard and the scale length is 18″ instead of the usual 17.1″ The first person who commissioned one of these instruments dubbed it a “super tenor” and I have used that description ever since. The larger body and longer scale give the instrument a fuller voice than a standard ukulele. Also, some people find it more comfortable to play.
This particular super tenor uke features a koa body, 3 piece mahogany/rosewood neck, rosewood bindings with white and orange wood purfling lines and an ebony bridge. The instrument has an ebony fretboard with a 12″ radius for added comfort and ease of playing barre chords.
