This limited edition Kala “Butterfly” Ukulele is made with Bocote, laminated on the top back and sides. Bocote is a highly figured wood found in Mexico with a rich, clear and deep sound, surprising for a laminate body instrument. This wood has broad, sweeping grain patterns of light and dark brown.
Note that because of the natural variations in wood grain, each individual instrument will be different.
The Kala butterfly models also feature arched backs which give them a very potent, punchy sound with warm overtones. Other premium features include beautiful maple/rosewood rope binding with spruce binding on back, a mahogany neck , a rosewood fretboard & bridge, a Custom Butterfly headstock inlay, a black NuBone nut & saddle, and a set of open-geared tuning machines with black buttons.
