Tanglewoods Java Series of Ukulele's have proved to be extremely popular, combining quality tonewoods, great appearances and excellent sound at great prices.
Here we have the TUJ1, with a solid Java Koa top and matching Java Koa body.
The satin face of the headstock has a thin veneer of Koa, brownish in colour, with an speckly and stripy grain, and 'Java by Tanglewood' painted on the top, along with a picture of some random mountains!
The back of the head has 4, 2 a side, Chrome open geared machine heads with small buttons for tuning.
The satin finished 3 piece neck is Mahogany, very thin of course, with a good round U shape.
The Tanglewood TUJ1 has a Rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers and bound in Flame Maple. The silver frets well finished, as is the board, making this a very nice little Uke to play.
The body is Java Koa, in a Satin 'Open Pore' finish that allows the wood to breath and improve with age.The dark grain looks almost like Mahogany, with plenty going on in the pattern, light and dark straks.
The top is solid Java Koa, again with a decent tight grain and bright brown finish and lovely feel, the back and top are bound in Flame Maple.
The front has a small blocky Rosewood bridge, and there is no soundhole rosette, giving a simple but smart look.
The Java Series TUJ1 plays lovely, sounds are woody and thoaty with plenty of sustain and character.
A beautiful little ukulele from Tanglewood.
