View Full Version : Kiwaya ks-1 Fretboard rosewood or not?

After reading all the good reviews for the kiwaya ks-1, I went ahead and ordered one online. When it arrived i noticed it had a stained fretboard, with a much lighter wood underneath. It is supposed to have a rosewood fretboard, but it doesn't look like rosewood to me, The shop i bought it from says that its a light rosewood, but i'm not convinced, and i don't want to pay 160 quid for a ukulele with a stained fretboard.

Does anyone know if its some kind of light rosewood or not?

Many thanks
