I can't tell from the distant camera shot what wood that is. Almost looks like one of our mahogany ones, but between the lighting and the size on screen, it's hard to determine. We sell most of our ukes through dealers, so I don't have direct knowledge of what ukes go to which performers a lot of the time.
