$500 with Silver Creek hard case, plus shipping.
All Mahogany Concert scale Ukulele, built in my shop, David Newton Guitars.
After using the last of my 100 year old, recycled, dark mahogany stash on guitars, I had enough small pieces for some ukes.
This one has a nice mellow tone, plenty of volume, easy playing. The body shape is a copy of a very old Diaz-made bragina-uke.
Rosewood binding. French polish shellac finish. Grover Sta-tite friction tuners in Gold.
It is a really sweet uke.

I wish I could make sound clips... spent all my money on wood!

Ukulele on hold now.

That is some great old wood. You can't buy dark mahogany like that today.
