Flame Maple Ohana Guilele on Clearance

50% off on this beautifully crafted Ohana guilele! Down from $300 to $150 +tax

Flame Maple back and sides, solid spruce top, rosewood bridge and fingerboard. Nut and saddle are made of bone. Excellent for a kid, student or someone looking for a travel size instrument.

Guilele is tuned ADGCea, allowing for the same fingering for chords and scales as a standard guitar, transposed up a 4th.

This is an old stock item that we are just trying to move along into a player’s hands. It is in perfect working order, no major scratches or dints, and it sounds great. Definitely a musical instrument, and not a toy.

Freya

Local New Denver act Freya (Martine Denbok on violin and Noel Fudge on guitar) has just released their first CD and it’s just what the doctor ordered.
Freya compose original pieces for violin and guitar. The music is fresh and innovative, drawing from Celtic and Folk roots, tugging on those timeless heartstrings that are anchored so deeply in so many of us. The CD is very well produced, clarity and volume are superb. Hat’s off to Martine and Noel.
A must have for any Kootenay music library!
