Circa 2005. New old stock. Never Preowned. Custom Ko’olau Concert Ukulele – Model 300. Absolutely stunning Custom Ko`olau Concert Ukulele in mint condition and handcrafted here on the island of Oahu by one of Hawaii’s foremost luthiers, Noa Bonk.
This custom Ko`olau concert ukulele is a model 300 by designation with all the bells and whistles added that really lends itself to being both aesthetically pleasing and a wonderful player ukulele. The body is handcrafted with gorgeous Hawaiian Koa face, back, and sides. The fingerboard and bridge are crafted from East-Indian Rosewood for optimal tone with a matching Rosewood headstock plate and top and back binding in keeping with the theme of the instrument. Rope marquetry purfling on top of the soundboard and matching center seam rope marquetry strip on back. The instrument also boasts a paua shell rosette and classic mother-of-pearl inlay for the position markers and Koʻolau logo on the headstock. Beautiful high gloss finish.
Wonderful tone and sustain that is clear, crisp, and well projected. Nice deep rich low tones and well balanced mid-range and high tones as well. Excellent projection, sustain, and clarity all the way up the neck. A traditional tone that rings true “Hawaii” with every strum and a custom piece that is rarely available. Includes Ko`olau concert ukulele hard case. This model has since been replaced by the ‘Deluxe model’.
