    Default Anyone interested in an Ohana CK 28 "Nunes style" vintage re-issue review?

    Reviews take a bit to write up and this limited edition model isnt everyone's cup of tea (modeled after the original Nunes/Dias/Santo with lots of rope binding, flush mounted fretboard and narrow waist). Not much in the way of reviews online or on UU.

    I just received this model last week...if there is interest, I will write up a full review.

    I'd like to see one. Past models have been a little "rough"...been hoping they'd tidy them up a bit.

    I'd be interested. I had one of the Anuenue 1879 models, which was the same sort of idea. It was an awesome uke, but a good deal pricier than the Ohana. I'd be curious how the Ohana stacks up.

    The CK28 is my best uke. Sound, intonation and fretboard are wonderful.
    I took a while to open up, but now it's much better than my Martin C1K (which I just sold).

    Here, here.........couldn't agree more. If not for reviews how would we learn about instruments we don't have the opportunity to play. The only downside to a positive review is it makes me want to rush out and buy the instrument. Actually that is not such a bad thing, is it
