This is a new sopranino size uke made of all Koa for the body. This Koa is 40+ years
old. The neck is Mango wood with a graphite truss rod. Although the mango does have worm holes, there are no worms, very unique looking wood. There are 12 frets to the body, 15 total. Nut width is 1 3/8". Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Two maple rings for the rosette. White plastic dots with white side dots. Bone nut and saddle. Waverly brand chrome friction tuners with smaller uke-friendly ebony wood knobs. Clear Worth brand strings. The playing scale is 11 1/2". Can be tuned to the
standard pitch (high A) or up to a high B. High gloss nitro-lacquer finish hand
rubbed to a smooth satin touch and look. Low easy playing action and a very full
rich mellow Koa sound. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. No case but I will
double box for safe shipping. Made in the USA. $25 shipping in the USA lower 48
states.Payment by money order, personal check or bank draft only, no Paypal. Email me if you need more information. Thanks for looking.


Was $495, now $450

I have a Black Bear Sopranino that I bought on the forum a couple of years ago and it is an outstanding instrument. Somebody should grab this one!

Sorry, I don't any means to upload a sound sample. The voice is clear and treble like because of the smaller body and higher pitch, with exceelent volume. I always offer a 2 day trial period for all sales and a money back guarantee minus shipping costs. Thanks for asking.

Several people have asked what it is like playing a shorter fret board. If you were to capo the soprano uke at the 3rd fret, that would now be a sopranino scale. Hope that helps.

Are you planning on any sopraninos with a cedar top in the near future?

I rarely use cedar for instruments any more. On a small instrument like a sopranino, there would not be much variation in the sound. To get it to sing on such a small top, it would have to be thinner and since cedar splits easily, I don't see the point.
