I've been googling all around and I still haven't found the answer. If anyone would be kind enough to assist me as to answering what type of Ukulele Jack Johnson uses then that would be great, I'd prefer it if no one just threw in a mindless answer please, thanks.

I remember hearing that he plays a Kamaka, so I googled "Jack Johnson kamaka ukulele" to verify and came up with article from last years Uke Fest in Waiks

Looks like a six string Kamaka at the end of Breakdown video.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he plays Kamaka ukes and Cole Clark guitars. :)

I thought he played a Cole Clark most of the time. They make his guitars and ukes. Other companies give him ukes and things like that.

When I saw him in Virginia Beach last year he was playing a Koaloha tenor with a crown bridge I believe.

I wonder why he doesn't play Devine as he uses his guitar

He's playing a Koaloha in a performance of Breakdown with Jake.

Saw him last year too in Berkeley playing the same uke.
