Sacco is a soprano ukulele with a shell made of jute bio-composite.
Jute is infused with a special bio-based epoxy resin while inside a mold under vacuum.
The process, sofisticated but still artisanal, took a long time to be learnt, but now let me build a uke that it’s a lot stronger than the other models I do, making it perfect as a travel companion.
Sacco’s body is far less afected by humidity changes, more resistant to scratches and almost immune to cracks.
To achieve this resistance the soundboard is made with a very thin and particular Birch laminate, that sounds very good and powerful. If you want a warmer sound you can decide to have a Val di Fiemme Red Spruce top (sacrificing a bit of Sacco’s invulnerability, since spruce is more delicate than birch laminate).
