Snail UKC-490E

£165.00 In Stock. Next Day Delivery order before 3pm

Spalted you say? Yes indeed - this Snail UKC-490E is a spiffy example of what you get when you spalt. If you’ve never spalted before, make sure you ask a trusted friend or family member if spalting is right for you. Once you’ve decided that it is, this is the uke you need. Concert-sized and beautifully made, the 490E is built with a spalted Maple top, back and sides, surrounded by immaculate marquetry binding. The neck is made from Mahogany and topped with an Ebony fingerboard, but Snail aren’t finished there. At the headstock end you’ll find a Bone nut, and at the body end there’s a Bone saddle mounted into the Ebony bridge. Strung with Aquila Nylguts, a nylon re-imagining of the old gut strings, you’ll be blown away by the projection, depth and maybe even the magic of this wonderful piece, but don’t take our word for it. Come on down and check it out, and we’ll give you the facts! Protected by a three year warranty with our crawling techs, this Snail UKC-490E is available at Wunjos with a gig bag as standard.
