APC Portuguese Solid Spruce/African Blackwood, Solid Acacia Soprano Ukulele
Beautifully hand crafted ukulele from Portugal. The feel of the instrument is very fine with a smooth light satin finish. Nice attention to details from the artisans that make these wonderful instruments.
The tone is crisp and bright with a lingering sustain. Following the style of a cavaquinho the top part of the sound board is African blackwood and the lower section is European spruce which gives this ukulele it's distinct tone.
Certainly a must for any ukulele enthusiast.
