Anybody know what brand ukulele is featured in the Kona Beer commercials? Interesting headstock shape.

Yes indeed. A friend was asking if I knew what kind of ukulele that was.

Looks to me like a Fender...

That headstock shape is typical of their strat and tele guitars, as well as their bass guitars...for like 50 yrs now.

Maybe it's the Nohea Koa model?

I personally would not buy a Fender uke though, plenty of other brands to choose from.

It has a Fender style headstock, but no label and a slightly different shape. Some friends have Fenders, they're not bad for what they are. Didn't Mya-Moe used to make that style headstock?

Don't G String make a single sided headstock that looks like that one? I can say for certain that it ain't a Fender though. Here's my NoHea...

You would kind of expect them to use a Hawaiian puke for a Hawaiian beer commercial, but it is a beer commercial after all, not a ukulele commercial. Probably not a lot of people even notice.

I agree it definitely isn't a Fender. The headstock in the video is similar but not the same. Hmmmm.....
