    Default NUD .... Concert Cocobolo uke !

    After seeing a post on UU, and checking out their website, I took the plunge and recently took delivery of this beautiful concert uke from Cocobolo Ukuleles.

    It's a seriously sweet uke! Great playability, low action, clear and punchy sound... I'm one happy camper! I have several luthier-built ukes and this one holds its own in the pack. But that cocobolo is something else... it even smells kinda spicy

    Beauty. Is the fretboard cocobolo too? I love the way the light wood continues up it.

    Enjoy

    Gorgeous uke! Sapwood looks so nice with the darker grain. Might be the best looking all cocobolo uke I have seen.

    Would love to hear how it sounds.

    Yes, those ukes are pretty.

    Very cool and unique. Enjoy!

    Congratulations Fisherman! I am happy to hear that you are enjoying your new ukulele. Thanks for sending me a sound sample as well. I added some pictures of your uke and made it into a small video. I love it when your 2-year-old joins in on the maracas! Check it out:
