I just won this uke on eBay for a very decent price. Not exactly sure who made this. Initially I thought it was a Kamaka because of how the end of the fretboard is at an angle but to my knowledge they never made any solid mahogany ukes. The bridge also doesn't look like a Kamaka bridge. I should have this by the end of the week. Any guesses on who made this?

Kamaka has had a lot of apprentices. Is that koa wood? rosewood fingerboard? might be replacement bridge also looks like a different kind of wood. Doubt its a kamaka.

For sure it's mahogany and the fretboard looks like rosewood.

Looks like a Gibson body with a Kamaka neck��
