1930s David Mahelona Ukulele


Extremely rare 1930s David Mahelona ‘violin’ soprano ukulele in beautifully restored condition. A true  world class collectible ukulele nearly 100 years in age. To my knowledge there are only a few of these pieces in existence and one of three known in the islands. The other known piece resides at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Muesum on the island of Oahu and the third is currently in a private collection.

Gorgeous Hawaiian koa wood face, back, sides, and bridge. Hand cut abalone shell inlay on soundboard and fretboard with a rope top binding. Matching fretboard rope and abalone shell inlay for aesthetic appeal.

A very beautiful historical and collectible ukulele for the serious uke enthusiast. ID#190034

Price: Not for Sale
