    Default Honu replica in Vietnamese store ?

    I found today in a Vietnamese store this uke
    It looks like Honu Ukulele but it is made in Vietnam.
    Also shopkeeper said that this is Koa wood and neck is mahogany ?
    It looks really beautiful..but I am not sure about this.
    Price is around 200$
    What do you think about this ?
    I would appreciate your opinion about this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Looks kinda blingy for my taste but YMMV.
    Check to see how thick the top is. Most importantly, how does it play for you?

    Where in Vietnam did you see this?

    I will be returning to Ho Chi Minh city in June and would like to visit this Ukulele Store. Last year I visited Bruce Wei, but did't pick up any.

    What is your opinion of the ones you saw there?

    I was going to say $40. Saigon has loads of little shops that make instruments for dealers. All of them have hugely gaudy amounts of bling.

    In Guitar Street
    There is a lot of shops there but I think that all of them order cheap Chinese Ukes that I saw on aliexpres and then just setup them a little and sell.
    Also they talk about some kind of Vietnamese Koa.. I never heard about it.
    If you come send me mail gromovnikdesign@gmail.com maybe we can walk together there.
    I try to find some people who play Uke here but there's no body

    Vietnamese Koa? That's not a thing. You might get Vietnamese Acacia - but only Acacia grown on Hawaii is called Koa.
