KU234, Koa Baritone with case

$899, with case and free shipping to lower continental US

Nice dark Koa wood with some curl. I find the darker Koa has a lower and woodier sound. Featuring a Maple rosette and unique white sapwood Koa bindings to provide a nice accent. There are side fret dots, but none on top the fingerboard for a clean look, and requested by some guitar players. Includes Kala Uke crazy hard polyfoam case.

KU233, Maple and Redwood Tenor

$675, includes free shipping to lower continental US

This unique Tenor sized ukulele features some extraordinary curly and Birdseye Maple backwood which is  accented on the headstock as well. The straight grained Redwood soundboard adds exceptional rich tones and clarity. It also features some rare curly Koa bindings that really complement the other woods. Inlaid Mother of Pearl dots really stand out on the ebony fingerboard, and the bone nut and saddle, with the rosewood bridge round out this quality instrument. The Worth brown Low G strings finishes the package and really shows off what this ukulele can do!

KU231, Maple and Mahogany Soprano

$225, includes shipping to lower continental US

A simple yet well made soprano with low g Aquila strings. Good student instrument at a low price.


KU229, Khaya Baritone

$650, includes free shipping to lower continental US

The Khaya for this baritone, also known as African Mahogany, was grown and harvested in Hawaii. It has a beautiful stripy pattern, and the mellow sound that Mahogany is known for. Khaya has a janka hardness between Koa and Honduras Mahogany, so it shares some tonal qualities of both. I decided to make it without bindings or added adornments to show off the tight construction joints and natural beauty. Other details: Spanish cedar hand shaped neck, Indian Rosewood fingerboard 1.5″ wide at the nut, mother of pearl fret markers, ebony bridge, bone nut and saddle, Grover U98 tuners with 18:1 tuning ratio, Martin 630 strings DGBE, and satin lacquer finish.

KU210, Baritone with Curly Koa body

$675, includes free shipping to lower continental US

AAA grade curly Koa Baritone. The wood is a light toned golden Koa, and a lighter weight Koa as well. This one has a couple upgrades: bound fretboard so the fretboard edge is cleaner looking without the fret tangs showing, and gold Grover 205 closed back tuners for a cleaner look as well. Martin 630 strings take advantage of Baritone body to deliver excellent volume and sustain. The body is unadorned with bindings etc, to show off the wood, much like you would find on ukuleles made in Hawaii.

  • Honduran Mahogany hand shaped neck
  • Bound ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl dots
