Guitars and ukuleles
Hand crafted in Polynesia the center of the ukulele world Woody Howard uses
the finest wood, rare “Tou” Cordia Subcordata . With this fine wood and his long
experience in wood working, Woody produces very fine instruments.
“Tou” (as it is called in Tahiti, Kou in Hawaiian) has great tonal properties
and a rich smooth look and feel. Tou wood was reserved only for the high ranking polynesiens because of it's rarity and qualities.
The ukuleles and guitars made by Woody are constructed in the reliable
Spanish method. The Te Kaha ukulele are also played by professional musicians
in Tahiti valued by its sound and artistic qualities.
6 to 8 strings available on order.
Concert models also available on order.
The Guitars sound boards are made with imported top grade woods for the best
projection of sound on these larger instruments. Honduras rose wood is used for
the sides and back as well as “Tou” wood. Woody’s guitar also has excellent sound projection, play ability, and craftsmanship.
Charley Dosias with his new acoustic Guitar made out of the rare Tou wood hand crafted by Woody. Florent Atem with a Tou wood Electric guitar Gibson style. Florent gave a thumbs up and he played us some hot magic music on the guitar.
Florent Atem in his studio with one of Woody’s hybrid Ukulele when he recorded his version of “sweet city woman”. Florent like the ukulele so much he bought it afterwards.
