Cornerstone Ukulele - handcrafted in the USA
In Surf City, California USA, Masterluthier Peter Marreiros is building gorgeous guitars and ukulele under his label Cornerstone. The perfection, the attention to details, the amazing sound is absolutely amazing.
Back and sides are from Mastergrade Bagstone Walnut wood. The soundboard is from a fantastic peace of curly cuban Mahagony.
The neck is a one piece Mahagony. The smooth bound and slighty radiussed fretboard ist from Macassar Ebony as is the bridge.
The top and back is bound with macassar ebony. The top has a wooden purfling and rosette from beautiful Paua Shell. The very comfortable arm bevel is another fantastic detail.
The bracing and kerfing on the inside of this exceptional Ukulele is not only a nescessary common set up - it is a piece of art of its own. As is the beautifully carved side soundport.
It is in every aspect an extraordinary instrument that combines best playability with a perfect sound and projection. Due to the wood selection that provides a full warm tone we consider that a highG setup suits this instrument better than a lowG setup.
