Thread: NUD Cocobolo Concert Ukulele #301

  1. #1

    Default NUD Cocobolo Concert Ukulele #301

    This is my new Concert Cocobolo handmade in Nicaragua, it has great sound, sustain and made to perfection!!!

    Standard Materials:
    - Solid Nicaraguan cocobolo top, back, sides, fingerboard and bridge
    - Solid Honduran mahogany neck, heel and bracings
    - White mother of pearl fretboard top and side markers
    - Grover Sta-tite Ukulele Tuners
    - Aquila Nylgut Ukulele
    - Solid bone nut and saddle
    - Steel ukulele fretwire
    - Side Port
    - standard with a 12" radius fingerboard
    - "through the bridge stringing", which allows the soundboard to resonate better and increases sound volume and quality.
    - is professionally setup with a string height of 1 mm at the first fret and 2.5 mm at the 12th fret.
    - a solid cocobolo strip that acts like a truss rod in the neck of all of our ukuleles. it is a nice handmade touch, also adds strength to the neck.
    - The neck of the Ukulele connects to the body at the 13th fret

    Adds-0n:
    - Waverly Snakewood Bridge Pins with Pearl Dots
    - Worth Brown Fluorocarbon Ukulele Strings

    As Kevin Keith says : Que Viva el Cocobolo!!!

    "Sometimes I can't think of a better day to end my day than coming home and just strumming my Ukulele for a few minutes."

    Awesome !!!! That is gorgeous ! The grain in that cocobolo looks incredible. How does it sound and play ?

    How long did it take to get to you ? I just "won" a lottery for #169 Tenor. I can't wait to get it.

    It has a great sound and sustain, and well balanced; it only took about 2 weeks to arrive to Puerto Rico!!!

    Congrats on a great uke! The back of yours looks very similar to mine. Your photos are nice, I wish I could take pictures like that.
    I bet you're gonna find it to be your go-to uke, Cocobolos are really hard to beat. The only downside to mine is that it's a bit on the heavy side, but it sure doesn't seem to affect tone or playability.

    I have the #300 concert and LOVE it, WOW on sound, sustain & the neck plays soon smooth, whooda thought that this wood would do such a good job. Sure slightly heavy but that is comfort to me. Also have #261 concert, so high & low g on trips together
