Pistachio Ukulele Back and Sides (DJ28)
Pistachio is an exceptional and unique wood for luthiers to use in building guitars and ukuleles. We started reclaiming and using Pistachio wood in 2002. The wood has unmatched qualities that will make great acoustic or electric instruments. We personally recover trees that have become unproductive in the orchards of the San Joaquin Valley. When the trees are removed they are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable guitar wood. The trunks are small compared to other trees used for making guitars so large pieces are rare. We air dry our Pistachio wood for at least three years.
Pistachio is a great tone wood for ukulele backs and sides. Match our Pistachio with our Port Orford Cedar or Redwood tops. Pistachio also makes great fingerboards (check out Aaron Keim’s Pistachio fingerboards at Beansprout Ukuleles). This piece showcases excellent color and contrast. The wood will also change color under a blacklight.
There are two book matched pieces 0.14 x 4 3/4 x 14 1/8" and two book matched pieces 0.15 x 3 1/2 x 22". Up to tenor size
