Gypsy Rose Tenor Ukulele
(Photos are examples of past ukuleles built)
Gypsy Rose Tenor- Reminiscent of the legendary Selmer-Maccaferri gypsy guitars. The Kepasa Gypsy Rose Tenor Ukulele is a good candidate for being strung with a low wound G string, and of course, standard re-entrant tuning works well too. This instrument has a very bold shape and a bold sound, great for fingerstyle, chord melody or strumming. Includes a large choice of in-stock woods, celluloid binding on top, back and soundhole, cutaway, Spanish cedar neck with carbon-fiber rod reinforcement, Tusq or bone nut and compensated saddle, rosewood or ebony fingerboard and bridge, dot inlays on fingerboard. A slotted headstock (additional charge) completes the Gypsy jazz look. Includes case or gig bag. Upcharge options are listed below.
