    Martin OX Bamboo

    No affiliation, but saw this one on Reverb. It looked pretty nice, and a decent deal too. I think they have been discontinued.

    Saw this video recently where this fellow brings a vintage Gretsch back to life, with neck reset, crack repair, etc. I believe it was the first uke he had worked on. He used some type of a deer...

    Haven't heard of any new Ohanas offering that, but would be surprised if they did, since very few of the imported from China uke manufacturers (Ohana, Mainland, Kala, etc) seem inclined to offer...

    You know, Alvin "Pops" Okami, the founder of KoAloha. He has started a new uke company called UkeSA. The poster was referring to one of these UkeSA ukes as a "Pops' uke.

    I've found that Aquila Nylguts will often bring out the best tone/volume from a cheap uke, more so than flourocarbons. Maybe why they're shipped on most every new cheap uke out there.
