Description

Please note: Paul accidentally damaged a small part the top in the final stages of construction of this one. It has been repaired and is completely sound structurally. The repair is very well done and very subtle. For this reason this one is offered at a lower price.

This is an absolutely superb instrument from U.K. builder Paul Barnard. I actually had a beautiful baritone from Paul personally a few years ago it it’s one of the nicest I have ever played. His work is so clean with an awful lot of detailing and spec that you would expect from a much more expensive instrument.

This amazing 8 string baritone is made from all solid Western red cedar with stunning solid figured ambrosia maple back and sides. It features a gorgeous mosaic wood rosette, a maple  faceplate to match the body, sapele neck with carbon rod, an East Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. It even has a 16 inch radius fretboard – curved to match the natural curve in your fingers making barre chords so much easier and more comfortable. The bindings are especially attractive on – the deep purple hue of the sucupira wood contrasting with the pale maple.

The maple body is together with the maple top  helps give this baritone a big bright tone with a nice depth too. The strings log/high D, low/high G, unison B, unison B. They combine together to give this ukulele a massive jangly sound. You almost sound like an entire band on your own when you play it! It is a superb uke and an absolute joy to play.

The top has a subtle clear stick on scratch guard on the top to prevent marking of the soft cedar top when playing

I really do mean this – Paul’s instruments are bound to go up in price as more people hear of his fantastic work. They’re really great. I believe this is a real steal at this price.
