Time in A Bottle, High G Low G comparison
This is a comparison of a Tenor High G (Moore Ukulele #122) and a Concert Low G (Moore Ukulele #123). Doing a Little bit of Jim Croce's 'Time In A Bottle' These were both made with Buckeye Burl on the top with natural sound holes. The sides, backs and necks are Deodar Cedar from a tree my grandfather planted in the 1940’s. The tree was struck by lightning a few years ago and had to be cut down. The bridge and fretboards are made from Rosewood.
