Handcrafted with gorgeous curly Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides, this beauty also boasts a Adirondack spruce top and Macassar Ebony wood top and back binding. The instrument incorporates an art deco style end graft of Hawaiian Koa wood for aesthetic appeal but also testifies to the skills of a master luthier. A hand-carved solid curly Maple wood neck with a Hawaiian Koa wood stringer for added stability, this technique transfers the vibrations back toward the soundbox in greater fashion adding to the wonderful and mellow tones of the instrument. A violin style body shape with a wider waistline, rounded lower bout, and a rope marquetry inlaid on the sound board pay tribute to the luthiers of yesteryear such as that of David Mahelona of the 1920s and his ‘violin style’ ukulele – prized at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, HI. Bone nut and saddle. Rogers professional tuners for precise tuning and a gorgeous high gloss finish.
