1920s Akai Ukulele


Beautiful and extremely rare Akai deluxe soprano ukulele from the early 1920s in gorgeous original condition. This beautiful piece was handcrafted on the island of Oahu at the turn of the twentieth century and remains in phenomenal collectible condition.

Gorgeous Hawaiian Koa wood face, back, and sides with all Koa wood neck and bridge. The soundboard and rosette are bound with a classic rope marquetry for aesthetic appeal. Original ‘Aloha Hawaii’ decal on headstock with ‘Made in Hawaii – Akai’ and ‘Made in Hawaii – Taboo’ wood branding inside the soundhole. This was typically done by earlier builders to distinguish the instruments made in Hawaii from those that were brought in to Hawaii from the continental USA and sold at local music stores. #230119
