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. 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.

KU224, Koa Baritone


3A grade Koa with some curl pattern in the wood makes this beautiful Baritone ukulele really stand out. The hand made rope style bindings made with Maple and Walnut give a nice accent. Another benefit of the rope binding is that the edge is sanded so it is rounded off and easy on your arm while playing. Also features: Spanish Cedar neck 1.5″ or 38mm wide at the nut, with an inlaid carbon fiber rod; African ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl dots; inlaid rosette; ebony bridge; bone nut and saddle; Grover 205 closed back tuners; Worth CB clear fluorocarbon strings DGBE; and satin 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
