Cornerstone Custom Tenor Ukulele Mastergrade Ovangkol and "The Tree" Rosette "Magnifico" #52

I got a text from Peter Marreiros from Cornerstone the other day saying this stunning ukulele was available and if I wanted it for Of course the answer was YES.

This is only Peter's #52 ukulele every built (identified on the inside label). If you have followed Peter's career you know that he is a master guitar and ukulele builder and I have personally seen the sound, look, and feel of his custom ukuleles get better and better.

This stunning tenor ukulele features mastergrade Ovangkol top, back, and sides. Ovangkol is in the Rosewood family, and this uke has magnificent color, flame, curl, sapwood (the lighter wood in the center on both the front and back), and bold dark lines. 

The Rosette is made from the most famous tree in the world, called "The Tree." A historic tree with a long history that is quilted Mahogany used to make some finest instruments ever seen. SEE BELOW for more info on "The Tree."

Like all of Peter's ukes, this is a one of a kind custom ukulele that will never be duplicated and since it's only the #52 ukulele made, it will do nothing but go up in value as Peter and the Cornerstone Ukulele name grows.

You will also be amazed at the inlay work of the Tribal Hibiscus Half Sail Inlay in the headstock, the Hibiscus "Peak Design" Inside Engravings inside the soundhole, and the Blue Paua Abalone inlay that goes along the headstock, the top of the uke, the purfling, and the fretboard. 

"The Tree" is a famous mahogany tree cut in the Honduras’ Chicibul Jungle in 1965. It was huge with a magnificent spiraling bark and loggers knew it would be amazing and, though it was in a crazy part of the jungle, they went for it. But they couldn't get it out. It fell down a ravine. Other people came and tried and no one could get it out for 18 years. As you know, it did have amazing figure but it also has more density and properties of rosewood in it's tone as well. Because of this, and it's scarcity, it became the most sought-after wood for custom guitars for years. Very little of this wood is still around but somehow Peter got some of the best we've ever seen! This wood really does make for a beautiful instrument in look and tone.
