“One-Offs” – Kala Mango & Ovangkol!

These Kalas have only solid woods and the finest touches. So why won’t they be models? I think it comes down to affordability. Staying true to your price range. Nevertheless, they are beautiful, solid wood, and they are crafted with skill and attention. Since they will only be once I thought I would document them here. Take a look/listen and then share your thoughts. Aloha!

Engelmann Spruce! If you ever drive up through the Oregon mountains you see beautiful forests of these evergreens. They are a supreme tone wood. Typically a creamy smooth white and these are prime examples. The back and sides are a west African wood called Ovangkol. This is a hard, straight grained rosewood excellent for clarity and note separation. Notice the Ovangkol neck as well. It’s a slender neck and doesn’t seem to add a weight difference which is also nice.
