Appears to be a custom Kamaka (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151308225764872&set=pb.20582614871.-2207520000.1403416490.&type=3&src=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-a-lax.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xaf1%2Ft31.0-8%2F470915_10151308225764872_1250305056_o.jpg&smallsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-a-lax.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash2%2Ft1.0-9%2F577883_10151308225764872_1250305056_n.jpg&size=1365%2C1365) - but it sure doesn't look like any Kamaka I've ever seen!

JR40 is correct. Taimane tells of it at :50 sec in this video. She speaks of it again at 3:15 min. Enjoy, ukejenny!

Thank you!!! I googled and looked around and didn't find either of these. Mahalo!!!!!

Editing to add, I love the look of the black ukulele, love the inlays and the position markers on the edge, and the sound hole looks interesting as well, though it is hard to tell.

Hmm... coolkayaker1 knows a little bit about Taimane.
