A bit ago a customer of mine sent 8 koa ukes to me for repair and restoration and I've finally been getting to them. Here are the first two of the batch -- a teens Nunes with spectacular flame (click for full blog post) (http://antebelluminstruments.blogspot.com/2013/05/c1920-leonardo-nunes-koa-soprano-ukulele.html) and a teens/early 20s Chicago-made uke, probably Harmony-made (click here for that blog post) (http://antebelluminstruments.blogspot.com/2013/05/c1915-harmony-made-flamed-koa-ukulele.html).
