Custom Ko’olau Concert Ukulele


Custom ukuleles by Ko’olau Ukulele. Absolutely stunning New Custom Ko`olau Concert Ukulele handcrafted here on the island of Oahu by one of Hawaii’s foremost luthiers, Noa Bonk.

This custom Ko`olau Concert ukulele is the Deluxe model by designation with all the added amenities that really lends itself to being both aesthetically pleasing and a wonderful player and recording level ukulele. Each year roughly 8-10 pieces, on estimate, are handcrafted by master luthiers John and Noa Kitakis.

The body is handcrafted with gorgeous and extremely rare Hawaii-grown curly Koa wood face, back, and sides. Koa wood is amongst the most prized woods aesthetically and tonally in the world and is used by luthiers on the finest ukuleles and guitars. Instrument grade Macassar ebony wood fretboard and bridge. Top and back Macassar Ebony wood binding for aesthetic appeal with gorgeous abalone ‘paua’ shell rosette and complimentary top and side b-w purfling lines.  Honduras mahogany wood neck for insured stability and added sustain. Macassar Ebony wood headstock veneer and professional Gotoh open geared tuners for precise tuning.  The instrument also boasts a stylish mother-of-pearl inlay for the Ko`olau logo on the headstock. Mirror-like high gloss finish on body with satin style finish on the neck allows for the player’s hands to move freely up and down the neck without concern of ‘sticking’ as you play.

Tonally, this beautiful Custom Ko’olau Deluxe Concert Ukulele is a true recording-level instrument with nice deep rich low tones and well balanced mid-range and high tones as well. Wonderful clarity, sustain, and projection all the way up the neck.

A traditional tone that rings true “Hawaii” with every strum and a custom piece that is rarely available.
