Breedlove LUCU26CEMYMY Lu'au Concert Ukulele Olive Burst CE Myrtlewood-MyrtlewoodFor years, Kim Breedlove was always at his best when he was designing and handcrafting stringed instruments. From walking and exploring the koa forests of Hawaii - to his home workshop in Bend, Oregon where he experimented with nuances in ukulele body design - the ukulele was one of Kim’s true passions.
Breedlove has combined Kim’s original concert body shape with his adoration for Myrtlewood – a tonewood he discovered decades ago growing on the Oregon Pacific Coast - which results in vibrantly stunning tonal energy which delivers more sound than traditional koa ukuleles.
Breedlove is excited to introduce Lu’au Concert Ukuleles… each designed in Bend, Oregon, crafted in China from Oregon Myrtlewood, design based on Kim’s custom shape and bracing. This models features a stunning olive burst gloss.
