    Default Where in the world were your ukes created?

    Just noticed my ukes have many nationalities. Even my US ukes are from many states. Very cool that ukes are being made all over. I'm curious to see how much of the globe is represented by what folks play here on UU. Where in the world were your ukes created?

    Here's a list of my ukes' nations of origin.

    USA
    Canada (LFdM)
    Wales, UK (Pete Howlett)
    Japan (TODA)
    Indonesia (Pono)
    China (Takamine)

    And those of mine that were made in the USA are from these states:

    Hawaii (Moore Bettah, Grimes, Koa Works, Pegasus, I'iwi)
    California (Kinnard, Compass Rose, vanPelt)
    Washington (Mya-Moe,Makapili)
    Colorado (Beau Hannam)
    South Dakota (J. Rieck)
    New York (Favilla)

    I always thought it was funny that Cordoba is an American company, trying to represent Spanish products, but made in China.
